Submission + - Data retention should last one year (

mask.of.sanity writes: The United States and Australia will enter bilateral talks in an attempt to unify controversial policies that would force internet providers to retain logs on the online habits of citizens.

Some EU nations keep the logs for as long as five years, although European nations disagree over the need for the plan.
