Although it's taking longer to produce, it seems Bing will follow Google and produce an application form. I would also assume that Bing will encounter similar volumes of applications to process.
Microsoft plans to follow the lead of Google, which responded to the court ruling by creating an online form that lets individuals request removal of links to material they say violates their online privacy.
Microsoft, which operates the Bing search service, is expected to introduce its own request form.
“Developing an appropriate system is taking us some time,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday. “We expect to launch a form through which users can make requests soon.”
I guess only time will tell, Samizdata. If the lawyers are doing their stuff they will leave no stone unturned. As a consequence, one way or the other, Bing could build a little more market share off the back of this as users begin to realise there are alternatives.
