Re:"You want Google or Microsoft deciding what is in the public interest?"
No. They are the perps. We are the victims.
Well, the current ruling requires Google and Microsoft to decide what is in the public interest. So if the data protection authorities don't meet with them and hammer our a coherent standard, then G & M will have to continue to decide it.
That's why they have to meet -- not for "blessing" or impact statements or because of some made-up criminal court-corporate conspiracy.
