Why are logs held for 90 days?

1) Why are logs held for 90 days?
2) Will they be held longer prior to a court order and user notification?
Thanks in advance.

TSI should do like sonic.net and erase them after 2 weeks:

Couldn't agree more, unless required by Canadian law.

Marc hasn't responded to anything over the last 24 hours, so he's either busy or afraid to even touch a single question or subject on the matter as everything is still, well everywhere

He has replied.

BUT

clearly shows he's avoiding this question! Or he's waiting for his lawyer to give him a proper reply so he can answer us!

I can well understand why Marc is keeping things off a public forum given the legal issues underway.

I've been through the various threads on the issue of logs, and it could be said to boil down to the following:

1. What is the starting point for all ISP's? i.e What is the legal minimum time for which logs must be kept.

2. What is the TSI retention policy? i.e Is it at or above the legal minimum?

3. What is the reason for the discrepency between 1 and 2 (if one exists)?

Assuming there is a law for it, Question 1 is a generic answer.

Do we know that yet?

Cheers, Dave

Marc will eventually answer this, but the more I look at it, the more I am coming to believe that there is technically no legal requirement to log IPs. At the same time, it seems like any ISP that doesn't is asking for a world of trouble. I don't think, in the end, that TSI keeps logs because they are legally obligated to. I think they keep them because it's much easier to operate as a business with them than without them.

Non quotable sources (see my other post) would agree with you.

My belief from conversations I have already had, is that a data retention policy anywhere between zero and eternity is quite legal.
