The Data World is upside down
Until recently, Germany was the only EU member, that did not perform any data retention. But alongside the many local and global political troubles, a majority of 404 delegates of the German Bundestag voted for the data retention on October 16th, 2015. But they are a long way off from a political consensus: Greens and Left Party closed against the new law while opinions differ widely within the Great Coalition. What does this decision mean for Germany and what is the state of privacy?
