Abstract. The forthcoming European regulation on data privacy penalizes violations by a fine of up to one hundred million euros: European Music Information Retrieval researchers must be compliant with any personal data processes. They are not allowed to transfer personal data to the rest of the world, excepted by using so-called ``Safe Harbors''. Detection of any personal data is mandatory, and ``whether a person is identifiable, account should be taken of all the means reasonably likely to be used to identify or single out the individual directly or indirectly. To ascertain whether means are reasonably likely to be used to identify the individual, account should be taken of all objective factors, such as the costs of and the amount of time required for identification''.
