Well, the corporate attitude to the law is easy: the question is not whether it's legal or not. The question is whether the expected (in the stochastical sense) fine is larger or smaller than the extra revenue it generated.

(Do we have court decisions already on whether breach of GDPR falls under unfair business practices? Because which end user is going to go and bring the charges against GitLab?)
