In January 2019 we filed complaints against eight streaming services for not responding properly to a simple access request. Exactly two and a half years later, the lack of GDPR compliance remains apparent: merely one of the eight complaints has been resolved. What happened to quick cross-border enforcement of the GDPR?

"While the GDPR gives users the right to privacy, many relevant authorities seem to be unable to enforce these rights"
This is consistent with what I see all around:
make laws which give the *appearance* of protection, but don't give (proper) funding to actually enforce it.
Which in essence makes the law (nearly) meaningless.
@FreePietje, I was thinking mostly of the central (Irish) authorities who seem to be quite reluctant in that respect. There might aswell be some national authorities who behave similarly, but I agree, there definively are national authorities who are willing but apparently are restricted by international (European) agreements. @noybeu
