Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but sometimes it’s hard to tell imitation from sheer coincidence. Earlier this month, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission released a series of recommendations echoing several core tenants of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Australia isn’t the only world player doing a GDPR cover. Back in November, Canada passed the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act offering similar privacy protections to those featured in the European Union. California’s forthcoming California Consumer Privacy Act will even bring a taste of those principles stateside.
