Yes but it would BE LOADS OF WORK AND SUPPORT and I am not willing to put this into it. It's not the host, it's the owner so I would need to sell it to someone and I don't want to do that.
Thanks Hoss! I knew if it was something easy, you would do it...

I was just thinking of moving it to a host not under those regs....

US content and service providers are already starting to shut out EU IP addresses. No more Instapaper or LA Times for European users, for example.

Big risks still ahead. What if someone uploads pictures of people playing a guitar, holding a guitar? I would need proof that this person gave the permission to be posted on MY site. I am not going to do that.
Yes, it is the end of the free Internet. Mega corporations with their million dollar law departments are fine.

Julio (burstserial.com) is fine because he doesn't have user content. @zorglub! make sure you don't have pics of people in the galleries.

I sure have a backup of the site and I could bring it back online in a couple of hours should the rules be weakened (I am sure they will as _A LOT OF_ EU and gov't sites are still not compliant, too).

Hoss, this is all news to me, and I apologize for my ignorance, but could you lay out what these regs are, where they came from, when they changed and why? Just a bit of history on how this IMO censorship of the little guys, came about.

Most likely, we are next..... This is not that Net Neutrality stuff, right?

Oh man, don't get me started. My work days have been FULL of GDPR related stuff for weeks. Just today a client had an emergency needing to find user data from an online campaign they ran last year...

It is a European law, it has nothing to do with US net neutrality. It was passed 2 years ago and became effective last Friday.

Have "fun":
