Re: Data Protection (GPDR) - does it reduce our rights?

There's a lot of attempted income generation and anxiety marketing going on about this at the moment, not surprisingly. However, the sky is not going to fall in.

To clear away some of the guff I thought this article was very sensible and clear: it's aimed at small commercial photography businesses, but it also has relevance for anyone photographing people where they'd like (some) clarity about how they could use the images, and I suspect anyone with a small business of any type might find it worth dipping in to.

I found it particularly useful at clarifying which areas remain unclear (so we're just going to have to wait to see what happens) while recommending what seem to be sensible ways to get on with one's work and 'art' in the meantime:
