EU Member States plan to ignore EU Court data retention rulings
Wed 29 Nov 2017, 17:32

Statewatch documents reveal that EU Member States are exploring all possible options to keep, and in fact expand, their current data retention regimes. The general plan is based on a new concept of ”restricted data retention”, which is really blanket data retention with a new name, along with amendments to the draft e-Privacy Regulation to facilitate blanket data retention. Member States are considering whether these new elements should be introduced through an EU instrument or through national law in each Member State.
