Update: 28 June 2017 | 15:22 CET
Germany's Federal Network Agency announced that it will not enforce the data retention legislation coming into effect 01 July. This follows a court ruling earlier this month granting an injunction to Spacenet against implementing the new requirements. The Bundesnetzagentur said that on the basis of the court ruling, which found that the German law may violate EU law, it would not impose any fines against companies not implementing the new measures. It may impose any attempt to force implementation until the full court case is heard.
