comment Why is the EU cookie directive causing so much excitement?
@Lèsemajesté don't panic! :) After reading the directives myself I have come to the conclusion that session cookies will be allowable should this come into force. I still disagree with your assessment of digest authentication however and suggest you read berenddeboer.net/rest/authentication.html

thanks for your contribution to this question and for putting something out there freely available to help webmasters and stimulate debate. Like @Nick I reckon it would be great if you could share some of the actual communication you have had with the ICO. I have emailed ICO with a URL to this question and asked for their input as well BTW.

What makes them first party cookies? GA is a third party service so therefore surely any cookie set by it is a third party cookie.

@EduardoMolteni I am afraid that delving into those techniques is not the purpose of the question nor is there enough room in the comments section to go into enough detail. BS = big surprise right? ;-)
