Re: What Authority Does a Foreign Entity Have on a Sovereign Nation?
@Dr.T: It's more about the businesses -- who subject themselves to that jurisdiction by reaching out to do business there -- than it is about the government of the US.

(And, besides, that's what treaties are for.)

Re: What Authority Does a Foreign Entity Have on a Sovereign Nation?
@geriatric: I've not 100% made my way through GDPR yet, but it's unlikely so simple.

Realistically, regulators go affter the big targets and the targets that are most egregious. Realistically speaking, almost nobody cares about lone eBay seller who hasn't dotted his i's.

Re: Going on different directions
It's a bigger political issue in Europe -- where people are still old enough to remember oppressive Communist regimes spying on citizens in a pre-digital era.

Re: HIPAA
@Dr. T: You would think, but it's not quite so simple (not that HIPAA is "simple") -- especially because fo the relative fungibility of EU privacy rules/regs/laws.  Privacy Shield and GDPR could very well be gone in five years time in favor of another period of BCR-mitigated chaos followed by yet a new rubric.

Re: What Authority Does a Foreign Entity Have on a Sovereign Nation?
@Pablo Valerio - while I certainly agree that any corporation with a physical presence would be subject to the reg, I'm not at all convinced that the EU's authority would extend to an American citizen with an eBay storefront who sells a t-shirt to someone living in France, or even to a small U.S. community bank whose database contains the address of an ex-pat living in Germany. So it all comes down to what 'doing business' means.

Re: What Authority Does a Foreign Entity Have on a Sovereign Nation?
@geriatric... actally it doesn't, except if a company does business in Europe. In that case they have all the authority.

If a company such as Facebook wants to quit the European market, and delete all the data they have on EU citizens, then they don't have to worry about GDPR.

GDPR
GDPR Is just a start I would say, all other countries will most likely have their own version of regulations to provide privacy to their citizens.

"Why would the United States agree to comply with a foreign regulation?" No but mos likely you have branch in there or customers, then you are part of the regulation.
