According to spiegel.de (german), Google is threatening to close down the german version of it?s popular gmail service if the german Bundestag passes it?s new internet surveillance law. According to googles german privacy representative, Peter Fleischer, the new law would be a severe blow against privacy and would go against Googles practice of also offering anonymous e-mail accounts.

If the Bundesregierung has it?s way, then starting 2008, any connection data concerning the internet, phone calls (With position data when cell phones are used), SMS etc. of any german citizen will be saved for 6 months, anonymizing services like Tor will be made illegal.

Personally, I applaud google for joining the protest against this absurd piece of fear-inspired legislation. A big corporation standing up against this might get some politicians to actually have a look at and think about the issue instead of just passing it through, ?Cause it?s to defeat the terrorists!?.

Take action now:

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? DO YOU AGREE WITH IT? DO YOU THINK THIS IS CORRECT?
