German data retention laws unconstitutional

mseeger (40923) writes "The german supreme court has ruled the current data retention law unconstitutional. All stored data has to be deleted ASAP. The court criticized the lack of data security and insufficent restrictions for the access to the data. Contrary to the expectations the court completely invalidated the law. While it not generally disallowed data retention, the imposed restriction demand a complete new law. SPIEGEL Online has the complete story, Google an english translation."

There are several gems inside the decision: it generally rejects access to the data for music and movie industry, special services (e.g. churches providing psychological help) must be generally exempt. The court rule has the potential to become a landmark decision here in germany.
