It does not deserve special concern. Every year there is a similar new about a law that will end free software in the European Union. This will not go ahead as the most alarmist version are claiming. It is not acceptable even for the public administrations themselves. A much more nuanced version will come out, like so many times before.

I think these are good laws because they protect children. I think we
should take further steps:

* Remove all walls from every house so child abuse cannot take place

* Ban salt because a child might eat a kilogram of it and die.

* All baby sitters must be at least 21 and be licensed and bonded.

* Ban all motorized vehicles and any vehicle over 500 pounds because
  they're likely to run over a child.

* Ban electricity coming into houses because many children know how to
  remove electrical outlet wall plates and might be fatally shocked.

* Change European electricity from 240 volts to 12 volts to prevent

* Ban laundry driers because a child might get stuffed in one by
  his/her older sibling.

And, because we claim to be so pro-child, I have one more:

* All EU public vehicles bought after 1/1/2024 must be either electric
  or small-engine hybrid. After 1/1/28 the same should be true of
  private vehicles, whether for EU or export. Coal and oil electric
  generation must be phased out within a decade. Spend trillions
  to quickly get practical energy from Fusion, so we can stop using
  Fission. Charge tariffs on goods and services from any nation that
  does not do these things. We do these things so today's children don't
  live in a world of constant natural disasters, starvation, and water
  wars when they're our age. But nooooo, let's just pass a "look at me
  I'm working for the children" anti-privacy law. Dis-gusting.
