Than they should also record all IP addresses and requests and store 
them indefinitely to provide evidence that they did not send porn 
out before 10pm. This case assumes that our society has the 
principle of presumption of culpability. In such a society we need 
to provide evidence that we haven't infringed anything. :)

I know that those are real cases. But wait a second. What should we 
back here? Their paranoia? If those services are paranoid, they 
should openly admit their data collection. And not doing so under 
DNT:1 and permitted uses. If there is a law obliging them, this is 
not an issue. The law prevails.
