Re: Fed Bill Would Restrict Web Server Logs

* Frank Louwers:

Strange thing is that we have exact the opposite here in Europe. There
is a new bill that has been passed that forces us to keep al logs (mail
and web) for at least 1 or 2 years.

It's not a bill, it's a EU directive which still has to be implemented
in national law.  Nothing in the directive requires that operators of
non-interactive web sites (the vast majority) retain any data.  Only
if you identify your users, you might be required to keep some logs.
Implementation in national law might change that, especially since the
directive is remarkably unclear about the selection criteria used for
mapping communication events to individuals.
