| I had read a while ago that the EU Commision was considering a law
| that would require ISPs to keep logs of e-mail headers for 3 years
| I dismissed it at the time as crazy due to the amount of e-mail
| (and therefore data storage) involved.
| I read now in the times that it will become law in a month
| Has the IT got it wrong or are all of us e-mail providers in for a
| rough run over the next while to comply with draconian legislation?
what is the EFF's take on this?
I took an admittedly extremely brief look at the
EFF's European site http://www.eff.org/issues/eff-europe
and didn't spot anything about this alleged EU directive,
or any laws anywhere (Ireland or elsewhere, proposed or
enacted) to implement the directive. I assume I simply
missed it, not really knowing what to search for .....
