The joke is that a company will be legally responsible for breaking the law in the EU if it follows the US court decisions. And good luck trying to weasle out of this one, German customer data is protected by EU customer protection laws, we don't give a fuck what a US court decides here. Either the US government makes a deal with the EU, or US companies will be separate legal entities here.
The way not to solve this is the way the Trump administration does it. And ask yourself this, why would Google violate EU laws where it can end up getting literally BANNED just to conform to some idiotic US law that doesn't even have validity in the jurisdiction that sister company sits? This entire court case makes no sense. Is the US government seriously saying that it's own companies should violate international law, WTO law, and nearly a thousand multi-national agreements?
And remember, Trump is the reason there is no data exchange agreement, he let it run out demanding a "better deal" to which the EU said "no deal" and now every company is fucked. "Which law do we violate" shouldn't be a needed decision for a company.
