Hi all, 

yesterday night, the council and the parliament concluded a deal on the data 
protection regulation. The text is now nearly final. A first DRAFT is here 
(NOT official)

I would like to point those of you working on Do-Not-Track especially on Art. 
19 2b of the Regulation, which is a "lex do not track". So if DNT succeeds, it 
will be usable with direct legal effects in the EU.
