I think it will be interesting to see how far the exception for services "explicitly requested" by users can be stretched (see changes to Article 5(3) - http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2009:337:0011:01:EN:HTML). Presumably fine for registered users of sites like Facebook and probably for internet shopping on Amazon; presumably not OK for websites that simply provide information to visitors.
