This, even though it is nominally 'good', is a disturbing trend.
The EU is de facto, enforcing their standards even in places outside of their dominion and essentially over riding the legal structures of other countries by virtual of using economics as a club.
When you look at what is happening with the (made up) 'right to be forgotten', a principle of censorship of content that is completely legal and protected in other jurisdictions becomes leveraged by obscene fines. Google and other search engines were forced to remove links to legitimate but disapproved (by the EU) sites, first in European facing servers and now they are pushing to force removal form ALL servers, globally (on the argument that Europeans could gain access to that information).
If you've been following news over the past couple of years, it's become plain the the EU is far more censorious than many other jurisdictions (particularly the US with that 'pesky' first amendment) and is moving into using the same type of economic bullying behind the GDPR to impose its own standards on any organization doing business in Europe. Since most internet web hosting and other providers have an international presence, the time may come when we can say it in the US, but can't publish on the internet.
