> Podcast: New chapter in the history of data retention

In mid-September, the ECJ made another decision on data retention. In this new episode of Weggeforscht, research assistants Johanna Voget and Klaus Palenberg report on the ruling, according to which targeted and warrantless retention, as provided for under the current German regulation, is not compatible with European law. They also point out the leeway that remains for the legislator after the decision from Luxembourg and examine the first political approaches to a solution.
