Re: Re: Data Racket
Well yes in Europe google is classified as a publisher I believe.

But Google does far more than serve pages. It intimately tracks how you navigate the web in order to build a profile on you to sell to advertisers. They know a lot. If there is no law restricting what they can do with that information, it can get very scary, very quickly.

Misguided Ruling at Best
Individuals who have a grievance about the misuse of personal information must fight this battle at the source of the information.  Laws should make this easier forthe public to avoid the need for costly litigation. Blocking an automated search engine from returning results from published data soiurces will lead to selective censorship and be imposssible to regulate fairly and in the best interests of the public at large.

Truth in History, it should NEVER be rewritten
"By revising history, therefore, one has the ability to specifically craft that ideological identity. Because historians are credited as people who single-mindedly pursue truth, revisionist historians capitalize on the profession's credibility and present their pseudohistory as true scholarship. By adding a measure of credibility to their work, their ideas are more readily accepted in the public mind. To an extent, historical revisionism is recognized as 'truth-seekers' finding different truths to fit the needed political, social, or ideological context." <- Historical revisionism

Re: Data Racket
Google isn't collecting data... it is simply indexing pages to search on. Are we saying Goofle is actually publishing the info??? Thats not how I see it.

This is Crazy
This is crazy... What about all the other search engines that are out there? They are just telling Google to do this?

Data Racket
The author seems to believe that your data and life belong to a multi-national corporation. Europe's court says your data and life belong to you. In the era of big data, what's to stop google from acting like a neo-mafia and extorting you for money or else they will publish their file on you? This decision is the first step to protect citizens from predatory big data miners.

Far more important than DMCA
Corporations are the first to scream when someone uses their "intellectual property" in a manner they don't like.  Just think of this as a "Privacy Takedown Notice."
