Oh man ist DAS ein schlecht zusammengestümpertes Gesetz.

Aber eines hilft (wahrscheinlich auch langfristig): DEZENTRALISIERT EUCH! Und das heißt unter Umständen: Eigene Server aufsetzen! Denn es mag ja eine Pflicht geben die ganzen Daten heraus zu geben und sogar unaufgefordert und #hastenichtgesehen aber man muss sich noch immer nicht selbst belasten!
Ergo: Wenn man sein eigener Dienstleister ist muss man diese ganzen Pflichten nicht erfüllen.

Use.

Just.
Don't.

“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

`git push -o skip-ci` is much better than adding "[skip ci]" to your commit message :D
