Not to put too fine a point on it, I've taken on all-comers with logical and factual arguments and, whilst there have been some sensible comments and suggestions from people with a differing view, the puerile nature of many who believe "Europe can't be allowed to tell American businesses what to do" is just staggering. In the US, Americans make the rules but in the EU, Europeans make make the rules - get over it.
Oh, and if you think this is just about bad Europeans stealing from hard-working Americans, explain to me why British Airways was fined by US authorities for anti-trust violations. We Brits took it on the chin, we didn't gripe and moan or criticise the US authorities or behave spoilt children.
