    What could possibly go wrong with an EU-wide database? The database itself is going to be "anonymised" after 7 days (that is, you won't nominally be able to see the fields unless authorised). The fields will still be there of course. And shared with the 5-however many eyes it is these days.

    Be thankful you're being protected, subjects. We'll work on the ferries and cars next....

    ... and the new USA ;)

    To be fair, every nation wants this. Who wants to be blind, after all?

    Maybe, but in order to avoid becoming an authoritarian nation, they should know when to stop, too.

    I would be interested to know what is included in "other service-related information", but it possibly means every available detail not included in other categories.

    They want to cook meals for you in case you are detained? :p

    Yea. But like Nebulus here mentioned, they have to know when to stop. USA and UK are really overblowing it. And at least Germany, France and Italy has it's own spying stuff going on in EU.

    It's interesting to note that when that now obsolete Data Retention Directive came in 2006, the following small countries were against it:

    Bulgaria
    Cyprus
    Iceland
    Luxembourg
    Netherlands
    Romania
    Serbia
    Sweden

    And it's interesting also that now that the Data Retention Directive has been declared obsolete and illegal, UK (especially UK) hastily passed up it's own mass spying law to replace it.

    Don't know what's the current status quo in other EU countries and especially in those previously mentioned small countries.
