I have a few free blogger blogs, and in the last while when I login I get this huge warning message, there are also posting on the Google forums, and they have an article about it.
European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent.
As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies.

Apparently the EU now requires sites to warn users about cookies, and collection of personal information. Google, appears to require all blogs to comply with this, regardless of which country the blog owner is from. That'll teach me for using Blogger. Google says they've added an appropriate message to all blogs, but if you're using a custom template it might not show, and regardless of custom template use or not, it is the blog owner's responsibility to make sure that a warning message is displayed.
Personally, I was using a custom template, but I deleted it, and started using a blogger one. Currently, even when browsing my blogs with a proxy/vpn giving me an EU ip no message appears to show, unless I disable my custom domain, GRRR. I am considering deleting my blogs, I've already deleted 1, because I hate dealing with this kind of stuff. It's not a huge deal for me since I have plain-text backups of all my important posts, but it's still bit irritating.
So that's my little rant. Anyone else ticked about this?
