Wrong. I read the law. My lawyers read the law. It doesnt say: Store the
data you have. It says: Store these specific datasets, no matter if you
have them or not. The comments in the "Regierungsentwurf" are very telling.
So, I am sorry. Tor nodes will have to log. ISPs will have to log.
Everyone doing public telco services will have to log.
