Ever since the new data privacy protections passed by the European Union in the wake of all sorts of shenanigans using apps and social media platforms app makers have found themselves in a glaring spotlight of scrutiny by the public they purport to serve. The General Data Protection Regulation recently inspired the makers behind the popular soccer streaming app La Liga to admit to spying on their users in a clandestine effort to weed out software pirates. That’s right, a company spied on its own users to make sure those users had a right to be there. And if that’s not embarrassing enough, the app is the official app of Spain’s football league, also named La Liga. The General Data Protection Regulation is a law that basically forces companies that use and retain user information gleaned from the Internet to disclose how that information is used, towards what purpose it is going, and how it is collected.
