Legislation always has a point - for those who are subject to it.
Before the Internet, this kind of thing would not happen but now, legislation stops at the borders while access is world-wide.
So you need to have agreements with the countries so that they implement something similar to your legislation - except it's another country, so it's their decision.
That is what is making the current situation very complicated and frustrating. It remains to be seen how long this will remain acceptable to the public before a global push to stop tracking starts up.
I'm guessing I won't see it in my lifetime.
