EU Data Retention Directive

Thanks to beSpacific for pointing to a draft European Union directive for the retention of communications data.

"The European Commission has finally produced its draft directive on data retention. According to the Commission, all fixed and mobile telephony traffic and location data from all private and legal persons should bestored for 1 year. Data about communications 'using solely the internet protocol' should be stored for 6 months."
