Lawmakers in Berlin will debate the bill in the Bundestag (lower house) on Thursday. Google says the law would make it harder for users to retrieve information via the Internet.

Google launched its campaign against the bill on Tuesday with advertisements in German newspapers and a web information site called "Defend your web".

I don't have access to those papers but I wonder if they mention in the ads that "Your Web" already cannot be defended because google filters and personalizes "your web".
