Europe doesn't just pass laws on Big Tech algorithms, it sets up cop shops to police them

EU already showed the US with privacy shield and safe harbour arguments that it will stick to its guns.

Both privacy shield and the safe harbour agreement are gone and can't be used as a legal basis to give data to an american company.

As a lot of european companies still use US cloud services all the EU showed the US is that it will continue to do business and ignore EU laws like GDPR (*) if they adversely affect business.

(*) Even if there is a contract that stipulates the US company guarantees an adequate level of data protection that won't work as there is no way for an US company to get rid of its obligations to the US laws like e.g. the CLOUD act.
