The President of the CNIL has rejected Google’s informal appeal against the formal notice requesting it to apply delisting on all of the search engine’s domain names, including google.com. Are the suggestions that the CNIL is seeking world domination justified?

- Popcorn But No Blockbuster (29/04/2015 09:25)
The latest of a long line of web site blocking order applications had a new twist but the production line for blocking orders was not much disrupted, let alone busted. Is there a need for a new mechanism that will bring greater transparency to this area?
