What is this about "4 streaming providers"?
All you have to do is switch VPN provider most likely.

If you are already using a VPN to access american Netflix, this announcement isn't really going to hurt you as you probably know how to circumvent it rather quickly after it's active anyway.

If you aren't using VPN, this doesn't affect you at all.

Replying to myself, after discovering some key information:

From TFA: "The ruling also said that, from now onwards, companies should also explain and notify employees if they monitor and log all their Internet activities, and they should also get consent from the employee in writing."

So they can't do it without consent, which was my initial concern.

Alright then :)

I would find another job if I found out my employer logged my private conversation without my knowledge.

If you are going to record and log all my activities, include it on my contract.
I'll happily sign it, I understand the reason behind.

But don't do it without my knowledge or consent.
That's a violation of my right, in my opinion.

How is it common sense that it's allowed to record and log a private conversation without prior consent?
Even call centers have to let you know you are being recorded, why can an employer do it without consent?

Company equipment or not, I don't think it's ok to record my conversation without my consent or knowledge.

If it's in my contract, fine. I signed that and it's now with my consent.

If my employer doesn't want me to use the equipment for private conversations, let me know or fire me.
Don't just violate my rights.

Court or not, this is unacceptable in my opinion.
