Europe: Your IP Address Is Personal

Finally someone said it... glad to live in Europe.

Europe: Your I.P. Address Is Personal - Bits - Technology - New York Times Blog:
"Nonetheless, Peter Scharr, Germany’s data protection commissioner, told a hearing of the European Parliament that I.P. addresses should generally be seen as personal information, according to a report by The Associated Press. Under some laws, and much industry practice, information that can identify an individual is often subjected to tougher standards for how it can be recorded, stored and transmitted than information about anonymous users and groups of users."
