- Making a big ruckus in this morning's news is the European Court of Justice's ruling that deemed a 15-year-old data-sharing pact between the EU and U.S. invalid. The decision cannot be appealed.
- "Legislation permitting...access on a generalized basis to the content of electronic communications must be regarded as compromising the essence of the fundamental right to respect for private life," Europe's highest court said in a statement.
- The ruling has significant implications on how internet groups can operate in the 28-member bloc, and will likely force thousands of companies to overhaul their businesses to avoid breaking the law.
