    I need to do some research, comparing Google search results for RTBF-affected stuff, from a variety of IPs in various countries. If you happen to know how that works, please share.

    Also, are there any useful public search services that ignore the RTBF? TLAs have complete data, I'm sure.

    If I remember correctly RTBF is only applied to searches conducted from EU. I remember that EU tried to extend it to whole world for their citizens, but as I remember Google rejected that demand. IDK how dispute ended.

    What bothers me is the possibility that Google will cave, and start restricting all searches, from everywhere, and not just searches "from the EU". They've been interpreting restrictions as "EU only" since that Spanish case in 2011. But the EU isn't happy.
