Microsoft Working On EU "Right To Be Forgotten" Form For Bing and Yahoo

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.”

The release date of the online form is not yet certain, because Microsoft must coordinate with Yahoo, which also relies on the Bing search engine to power its search services.Microsoft Working On EU "Right To Be Forgotten" Form For Bing and Yahoo [bits.blogs.nytimes.com]

I doubt it.

Obviously it would make sense, but Bing has little market share in the EU.

It's a bit like expecting a lot of vitriolic anti-Bing posts in this thread.

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.

The point about the so-called "right to be forgotten" is that you don't need a lawyer to claim it.

Just fill in a simple form and let the search engines' lawyers worry about it.

I notice that Ask are also implementing such a form now.

Everyone seems to have forgotten them already.

In the states that have legalized marijuana and have lots of birds they'll leave no Tern unstoned.

But I digress.

I'm opting for a new method for "EU Right To Be Forgotten" that if your IP is from the EU, we'll forget how to serve your search request all together.

Problem solved :)
