This article looks at recent legal developments in relation to collective redress for breaches of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In particular, it examines the interpretation of Article 80 of the GDPR, which allows interest groups to act on behalf of data subjects. The article analyses the historical context and explanation of this article, as well as its relationship with the Directive on representative actions. It also discusses the implications of recent litigation, including that against TikTok. The authors argue that the European legislator has deliberately avoided allowing collective damages without a mandate in order to prevent a potential culture of litigation. The conclusions of the Amsterdam court in the TikTok case are questioned, and the article anticipates further rulings that will hopefully provide more clarity on this complicated legal issue.
