Submission + - Data Retention Act passed in Norway (aftenposten.no)

An anonymous reader writes: On Monday, the Data Retention Act of the European Union was passed in the Norwegian Parliament with a narrow majority of 89 votes against 80. The Act mandates telecoms and other providers to save all traffic data about all (mobile) phone calls made and and all email sent for at least six months, so that it will be available to the police in case it is needed for an investiagion. The debate preceeding the vote lasted for ten hours, and representative Tine Skei Grande of Venstre made her final remarks with a quote from Star Wars — "So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.".
