you might have some ownership to make sure you provide the information to your users and I think that's common sense because if you've got a user who maybe doesn't understand how third party ad networks work and how web pages work, then clearly if they see something they don't like they are going to complain to the publisher first because that's who they think has maybe set that

Find out more about cookies
This should have gone the same way as straight bananas.
6. Surely the best way to implement this would be in the browser - i.e. requiring all browsers distributed in the UK to specifically ask the user if they wish to allow a particular site to set a cookie on their machine. Why has it been executed in this particular manner?
...I think the other important point there is in the way the question was phrased, sounded to me like somebody was suggesting it would be nice and easy if browsers simply asked you every time you went to sites, do you want cookies from this site. I could see that being fantastically irritating for users because I know how irritated I get when my browser tries to do things for me or tries to help me out, so maybe its not quite the silver bullet solution that the questioner thought it might be.
government sites are unlikely to comply totally
And likely because they're immune to their own laws.
But is it possible for any functional website to comply?
