Hello Mr. Reith,

actually I am not a laywer an basically you are correct that it was a mobil
company filed the lawsuit but the justification of the court which reads

"Nach Auffassung des zustndigen 6. Senats sind sie nach den bisher
geltenden Vorschriften anders zu behandeln als die Verbraucher, die sich
mit einem Vertrag an einen Mobilfunkanbieter binden. Eine Verpflichtung der
Betreiber, auch fr sie eine Kundendatei zu fhren, verstt nach
Auffassung des Senats gegen das in der Verfassung garantierte Recht des
Kunden auf informationelle Selbstbestimmung."

reads in my (not jurisdical founded) opinion that the storage of the data
by a mobil phone operater violates basic rights of the customer.
