The people on NANOG mostly deal with moving packets around the network.
Log files are kept on servers, or on SAN farms, and the NANOG folks
generally don't deal with that so the legislation will have little to no
impact on them.

Specifically, NANOGers probably won't have to implement this change. That
task will fall to ISP management and to the people who run storage systems
and SANs.
