Submission + - 64 Complaints Received on UK Cooklie Law (

judgecorp writes: "Privacy watchdog, the Information Commissioner's Office, has already received 64 complaints under the UK's Cookie La, which requires sites to get permission to track users with cookies. The law only came into effect on Saturday, and many sites do not expect to comply soon. To make life more complicated, the ICO has updated its advice, apparently allowing "implied consent" instead of actually making a user click a box to give permission for cookies."
