"For example,... impose (for example) a ban on new customer sign up or new product sales to create a similar financial impact."

Interesting, but why hit consumer choice? Like it or not, most people who buy Android phones a) want an Android phone, and b) don't give a toss about all this stuff. Saying to EU citizens "We have decided that you cannot buy the phone you want for reasons we deem to be important but you don't" would be folly of the highest order.

I know from your extensive comments that would like to see the EU gone, but it seems two-faced of you to suggest a solution of a type that you would ordinarily criticise the EU for doing (so maybe you have an ulterior motive in this suggestion?)
