DUTCH COURTS PLUG ATTEMPTS TO BREACH PRIVACY

We're sure someone who's better on European law than we are could confirm this, but if a Dutch court has said that Brien (RIAA's client body in the Netherlands) has no right to insist ISPs give up their user's details, doesn't this mean all of us in Europe should have equal protection? At least in theory? And doesn't that mean that the BPI legal actions ought at least to be stayed while it's decided if they do, actually, have the right to the names of filesharers?

Or should we all move (our data) to Holland instead? Certainly, we should be able to buy our broadband from Dutch companies...
