I'm not a lawyer but I think that the US Patent Office has created a "cul de sac"
Indeed, all companies dealing with EU citizens personal data must (must) comply
with GDPR and explicitly ask for consent; but, on the other hand, to be compliant
companies must pay fees to a private (US) company!
This seems to me completely illegal. I think the question must be reported to the EU
Commission offices to activate due actions.
I have not read it yet, but there should be plenty of prior art to deny the patent.
