Unobtrusive EU cookie work-around

Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

The EU Legislation regarding website cookies may on the surface appear not to concern forum owners, but I am afraid it does very much concern us, the cookie that "Remember Me?", login and register downloads constitute 'non-essential cookies' and is in actuality a direct violation of the EU Legislation.

Even if you do not agree with this Legislation, the facts remain the same, it is a Law and whether we like it or not as forum owners we can be held accountable, in light of this I figure why have a messy image or annoying pop-up infuriating your users when we can use a simple title html function.

You can see it working live on my own site here: http://lightpathways.gi9.co/forum.php

Sorry, I might be missing something but I can't see anything relating to the EU cookie law in the demo. What am I looking for?

My fault, I just added an attached image to make it clear.

Oh cool, thanks. That's pretty neat.
Although saying that, even if they don't click the remember me box and just register or login, you're still storing cookies on their computer and they may not see that notification...

Perfectly valid point there, just in case those get targeted I have added edits to cover ourselves for those eventualities too.

What about browsing on a phone? Cookies can still be stored but there is no mouse over.

Ah, an interesting point, I don't use one so I cannot look into that one, do you have a suggestion perhaps?

I haven't read anything pertaining to mobiles and cookies to be honest, has this been addressed by the Eu then, can you link me to the information please?
