Yes @Slate, consent is not an "ethical rubber stamp".

But no, #gdpr does not "require companies to ask for consent prior to data collection processes".

Consent as legal basis seems to be one of the most persistently misunderstood elements of GDPR.

"We aren’t saying that consent has no place in this ecosystem. But it shouldn’t be the only way we let people make decisions about data protection."

Exactly! That's why GDPR has 6 legal bases for processing, one of which is consent. And consent is often not an appropriate basis.
Choose legal basis that reflects the relationship and processing, consent is often not appropriate and if consent is difficult it's probably because a different legal basis is the right one - @ICOnews

There are plenty of examples of where consent is not the appropriate legal basis.

Kind of odd where a whole EU law has been crafted exactly proving the point of the article but that central point is missed and the law is misinterpreted as "requiring consent" before processing.
