Writes Dave Wiener: After the recent email meltdown, I didn’t send today’s DaveNet out via email. He might have given up on e-mail — but why force others who are able to cope with its problems to give up on it, too? RSS might be a good additional offer for making content available. But for many things, it can’t replace e-mail.

The battle about the JAP anonymizing proxy continues: After a decision of the Lower District Court in Frankfurt to add surveillance features to the system had been suspended by the District court (details; code is law analysis), German federal police obtained a search warrant from the Lower District Court last Friday. The data captured while the surveillance measures were in place (a single record was collected) were turned over to police during a search conducted Saturday. The Lower District Court’s decision to issue the search warrant is believed to be illegal, and will be taken to a higher court. In particular, there was no obligation to turn over the data until a final decision is reached on the legality of the original surveillance measures.Press release: German / English
