Google May Stop GMail in Germany Over Privacy Issues

The German government’s proposal to monitor and record email usage in their country has Google threatening to stop Gmail service to the country, according to a SlashDot report today.

Gmail had to rename itself in Germany recently as Google Mail, similar to events in the UK.

Seems Europe is not the friend of the Mountain View behemoth. The German legal changes would not take effect until 2008, reports stated.
