Re: They're not first and won't be the last.

Fun (well, tedious, but important) fact about the GDPR, it is an EU regulation, and applies directly in member states without having to be transcribed into national law. You're right a directive has to be enacted by member states; the previous Data Protection Directive became the Data Protection Act in the UK. The advantage of a regulation is things are harmonised, IANAL, but I guess disadvantages are it being more difficult to integrate them with existing national law (legislation may still be required) and people worrying about sovereignty.
