GDPR forcing companies to close business or increase product cost - Company list

GDPR will come into effect on May 25, 2018 and it seems some companies are either not ready with the GDPR compliance or decided either to close their business from EU. Some companies have decided to provide less features. It seems with GDPR implementation the EU people might be affected more as some companies might increase the cost of their services because they have to hire more people to take care of GDPR requirements. This is not a one time activity like it is done for Y2K bug.
