event format: working session
A idea do evento seria explorar a lei que permite ao governo portugues aceder aos metadados das nossas comunicações e ao seu armazenamento. Este tópico já foi discutido no fórum
The european union passed a law that was considered later considered to be against the fundamental rights of the citizen. The law find source mandated that telecom provides recorded metadata for two years. But since it was a directive, it was implemented in every country’s laws and when it was conidered illegal, it was already too late. Now the law has to be abolished in every single EU country’s tribunals. In Portugal the law was apparently considered inconstitutional. But then it seems that a loophole allowed for the continuation of that collection and use. We should investigate a bit more on this.
