Will everyone exercise this right equally?
This is a right that I fear is inherently discriminatory. Only those with the money and leisure to insist on its enforcement will be able to exercise it. An aggrieved party has to call the issue to Google's attention, supply answers to any questions and check up on what Google's internal decision was. Does anyone kinow how this works, really? I would rather laws be enacted that can apply to everybody, although the "apply to everybody," regardless of income, standard has been problematic since the first law's adoption.
