Panel: Exposing a New Generation of Data Retention Laws

I participated in this panel about new data retention laws in Europe. I covered the recent decision of the Portuguese Constitutional Court, which stroke down our data retention law. It is still a bit too early to know what to expect from the Portuguese Parliament regarding the next data retention law, so I didn't explore that much – let's wait and see. But other countries are much more advanced in their attempts to achieve the required proportionality.

I was sick, with a blocked nose and somewhat short of breath, so my articulation / voice / English is even more broken than usual, sorry for that ;)

Other panel participants:

Patrick Breyer (MEP), Germany
Jesper Lund, Denmark
TJ McIntyre, Ireland
Bastien Le Querrec, France
Jan Vobořil, Czech Republic
