In "The GDPR: The Emperor’s New Clothes — On the Structural Shortcomings of Both the Old and the New Data Protection Law," Winfried Veil writes, for supporters of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, it is "the global 'gold standard,'" and "the EU is the 'trust centre of the world.'" However, others "complain about the bureaucratic, costly, small-parts and unrealistic specifications of the GDPR." In this paper, Veil summarizes the "various currents of fundamental criticism of data protection law, in particular the utopia of informational self-determination, the ineligibility of the legal instrument of consent, the precautionary principle, the GDPR’s disregard for the freedoms of communication, the unanswered question of what should be protected at all."
