Waiting for the motivation I think that the question of "privacy" needs to be defined in a self-regulatory code made by a multistakeholders process.
 European directive on electronic commerce has explicitly called on member states to do this but until now the Italian government has not done anything and the risk that we run is that the policy is replaced by the Courts'judgments.

Hi Andrea,

I thought that the problem about the video isn't new, no?

	What is available at the moment is just the decision, not the motivation,
	which should be made public in maximum 30 days.
	Indeed, it is surprising to read already so many comments on a decision
	whose rationale is unknown.
