That's not entirely correct. It means in fact, that you have to answer inquiries by the authorities immediately. So, if an authorized cop asks you to tell him when a particular person accessed the internet, you must be able to give that information immdiately. The law has already caused a lot of unrest with many ISPs, because to fulfill the requirements of the law, they have to install specific softwares and additional hardware to make this possible, which both are very expensive. The problem is that anonymisation software like tor can't be run any more if this law comes into effect, because you usually can only capture the IP address and do not know who accesses your node. The law however requires the providers to be able to connect a particular name with the IP address and record the related activities in connection with the name. It's not just additional logging of data. It is much more that would be required. Martin -- Dr. Martin Senftleben, Ph.D. (S.V.U.) http://www.drmartinus.de/ http://www.daskirchenjahr.de/
