Last month the French government passed new legislation dictating that service providers keep records of every username, password, activity, date/time and email address for 12 months.

A bit of insightful humor for anyone who has ever stepped foot inside a law school anywhere: Coded law..good if you're a mega-corporation or government, bad if you work for a living..

People allow it..Executors do it. US data centers have government owned databases duplexed into public gateways and nobody complains..

You try to show you own your own data and you'll get sued by the people who really own it..
