Google, Facebook, eBay have joined more than 20 leading Internet firms in France to file a complaint against a requirement for them to store users' personal data. Viva la privacy!
Represented by the French Association of Internet Community Services (ASIC), the web companies are taking issue with a French decree that forces them to store users' data for a year to be used by authorities as part of an investigation. This includes not just e-commerce, video, music, and email sites to store not only emails and passwords, but mailing addresses, password hints, pseudonyms, and telephone numbers as well.
ASIC chief Benoit Tabaka explained to the AFP that, "This is a shocking measure, this obligation to keep passwords and hand them over to police services,"
The firms will formally file their complaint tomorrow morning, and hope to bring their case before the State Council.
