The fifth paragraph of the story, "Germany taken to court for failing to implement data retention," posted to the newswire Thursday, gave an incorrect country affiliation for a member of the European Parliament. The correct country is Sweden. The quote that opened that paragraph also should have included the full first sentence. Both have been changed on the wire and that paragraph now reads:

"The decision to take Germany to court is absolutely ridiculous," said Swedish member of the European Parliament Christian Engstrom, of the Pirate Party. "They have made a preliminary evaluation of the Data Retention Directive and found with lots and lots of problems with it. I think this shows that Commissioner Malmstrom is driven only by prestige and common sense is not in her vocabulary."
