They would still have to do that, my understanding is it merely sets a time limit on how long they have to retain that data. The ISP's are already doing it, perhaps not a year but nonetheless still doing it.
to me this just means they are saying "keep it cause we are coming for it"
They should be required to delete it straight away.
Of course, the people who have something to hide will use VPNs, proxies and other people's connections
its not really a matter of something to hide or not, same goes for I wouldn't want someone looking over my shoulder as I type this post.
If you knew someone was listing to your phone calls no matter what you were talking about you wouldn't really wanna talk on the phone anymore.
I feel like if this falls into place im going to have to do 75% of my surfing on an encrypted VPN.
