EU may start saving search history too

The EU is going  to discuss whether or not to force ISPs to save the searches you make in online search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, whatever. Apart from the privacy implications, who is going to pay the ISPs for the massive extra storage capacity they’ll need, but more importantly: what defines a ‘search’ – what about if you’re looking through a job site, or a housing site or a forum? Why not force ISPs to store any and every bit of information passed through a form? Creepy stuff.
