Spain Passes Internet Law

from the privacy?--who-needs-privacy? dept

Yet another country is passing laws that say privacy shouldn’t exist online. The latest is Spain, with a new law that requires ISPs to store details about users for up to a year. Once again, of course, this simply creates more data, which will probably obscure the useful data. The bill also outlaws spam, but I doubt that will have much of an effect.
