Germans debate privacy laws

Reuters reports that Germans are demanding tougher laws following another breach/scandal:

On Monday, privacy officials also said they were able to buy 6 million pieces of personal data, including bank and phone details, undercover on the Internet for 850 euros ($1,248).

Officials have said the information seemed to have been stolen from lottery firms’ files or mobile phone contracts.

Will this be an EU effort, or a regional effort similar to the rise of US breach disclosure laws?
