Laws on this point are different in all the EU countries. Gerrit, you'te citing
the German situation, whereas Ward may be citing the situation in Belgium. If
so, I think I prefer Germany. We in Germany tend to be very allergic to
attempts by the government to "monitor" us. That may be an historical attitude,
but it exists.
