just some corrections. Actually the ruling leads to the fact, that google analytics, as it provides its service right now, will never be legal in Germany. To give an example: The user must give its consent, which according to the german law has to be done, BEFORE HE VISITS the website. Even if some websites put that condition in their terms & conditions, it is still illegal, because, by reading the T&C, the user already visited the website. From my point of view this will become a big thing in Germany, as the government argues about the storage of data by the government for nothing longer than 6 months for years now.
