I thought you’d be interested in a couple of stories (in English) about the German government’s proposed new BKA law (Federal Crime Agency law, would be my translation) which is proving controversial because it will give the BKA new powers of intercept and “cyber-spying”, through remote online searches of computers. The proposals have passed the Bundestag, but I think are still being discussed in the Bundesrat, so opponents still have some chance of lobbying and getting more safeguards.
