We are not talking about removing public interest links on criminal behavior. This issue can’t be conflated with covering up crime. Quite the opposite.
Industry files a couple billion claims to remove links essentially for IP based profit infringement and Google complies 500 million times yearly- which personally I find absolute nonsense. But Google which mines our privacy profit (which I find criminal) then whines to high heaven about removing personal gossip when in many cases its not more than slander or libel. And when Google collects dirt on people or works with firms that want to hold such stuff indefinitely and act like its their property for a threat and intimidation business or the blackmail industry, really organized crime. Its not just no but hell know. This is a complete reversal of the public interest just like the US credit reporting industry which is an industry based on financial gossip, which the EU also bans for privacy and honesty reasons. That perverse (and needs to be dead industry) literally tries to addict people to debt, raise your credit score by more exposure to debt through more credit card usage. And the joined at the hip card industry comes up with phone reasons to kick up to usurious and then lobbies to bar bankruptcy because the goal is debt enslavement.
Remember when Australia wanted to tax Google and they were like we will pull out go pound sand because your people wouldn’t even know we didn’t pay taxes if it weren’t for our service. Well Google forgets they are replaceable. There is no future debt owed to them. Our use of their tech up to now was payment and full.
