Google itself did two things very quickly in response to the RTBF ruling. First, it mobilised a major team to process delisting requests. This is no mean feat -- reports say that 150,000 requests have been received to date -- but it's similar to the task of managing take-down notices for copyright and unlawful material, and Google is well practiced at that. Secondly, the company convened an Advisory Council of independent experts to formulate strategies for balancing the competing rights and interests bound up in RTBF. The Advisory Council delivered its report in January.
I declare I'm a strong supporter of RTBF, so I had high expectations of the Council's report. Yet I found it quite barren.
