"They're not under the jurisdiction of the EU legislation so what is the problem?"

Most companies don't like judgments against them and large fines, even if it's not immediately collectible. You have to decide never again to go anywhere near that jurisdiction, i.e., the whole EU, forever. WaPo is owned by Bezos, who also owns Amazon, so sufficiently many annoyed judges and politicians will lead to seizures of warehouses.
