Since the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) rejection of the Data Retention Directive, several member states have taken action. Norway has changed plans to incorporate the directive into law, with officials confirming the government “will prepare a new proposal for data storage.” Swedish authorities, meanwhile, “won’t take action against an ISP that erased all retained communications metadata, even though there is still a law in place compelling providers to retain such data,” PC World reports. And in The Netherlands, the GroenLinks Party “plans to introduce legislation within two weeks ending the requirement for telecom and Internet companies to store data on customer communications.” This week, the IAPP’s Privacy Tracker legislative roundup includes, with other news from round the globe, the CJEU’s recent decision invalidating the directive.
