VPN, proxy, and all kind of traffic relaying services are the result of a legislative competition on top of a technical layer.
Note that a related routing protocol that would make packet follow the route the closer to their legislative would leverage related meta-data like the current law system in a country, the type of ISP, the type of AS, etc.
e.g. Loi informatique et liberte (n°78-17) in France allows you to ask the information provider to give you all the information concerning yourself. One could thus ask mailing list managers to ask where, when and how you supposedly subscribed to their services.
Since such activity are rather boring and repetitive, providing a set of templates for emails and other means would allow to more efficiently use the law. See also Legislative updates proposed later on.
Tools for term of contracts analysis would also be helpful here.

My notes on Tools gather what I know or want to know. Consequently they are not and will never be complete references. For this, official manuals and online communities provide much better answers.
