All right; it’s a big word. But as the article points out, such laws necessarily impose a national or regional legal framework on others outside their authority.  The actions needed to land in the EU actually have to be undertaken outside the EU.  When there is a broad consensus world-wide this is not a problem. Problems arise when, as in this case,  that consensus is lacking.
