Haha I think you're right internetheaven, they have made this far more complicated by introducing a law that we're not even sure how to comply with!
The company I'm with have been working on a popup banner that people can download and add to their websites so they can comply with the law. Not sure if that's the best solution, but it's one that a lot of companies are doing. I saw recently BT.com has a popup that allows you to approve/deny cookies, and so does games-workshop.com where you have to tick to approve cookies or you can't see the site at all. It's quite a shame that we have to put stuff like this on our sites at all!
