+ - European Court of Justice strikes down data retention law

Submitted by nachtkap
nachtkap (951646) writes "The BBC reports:

The EU's top court has declared "invalid" an EU law requiring telecoms firms to store citizens' communications data for up to two years. The EU Data Retention Directive was adopted in 2006. The European Court of Justice says it violates two basic rights — respect for private life and protection of personal data.

Germany's supreme court did call on the ECJ to look into this issue as well."
