The behavior is different for each of the websites, because each site has chosen a slightly different way of complying to the law. One of those regrettable, unintended consequences. Maybe someone with clout will help the bureaucrats understand the technical implications of their decision.

Meanwhile, the solution would have to be for Calibre to accept and store the cookie, or perhaps pass through the interaction to the user if that's what the law requires. Since each site has adopted a slightly different method, that won't be simple. Too bad. I had been reading Dutch news every day on my Kindle. No more.
