Google a facut primul pas in vederea conformarii cu
hotararea Curtii de Justitie a UE si a pus la dispozitia tuturor un formular prin
care pot solicita eliminarea continutului irelevant sau inadecvat din
rezultatele afisate la cautare.

va afecta start-up-urile care vor sa se dezvolte si va ajuta guvernele

lucrurile si din perspectiva europenilor si se va dezbate mult pe subiect.

European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) to help 1 000 former workers of
the steel products manufacturer SC Mechel Campia Turzii SA and the downstream
producer SC Mechel Reparatii Targoviste SRL to find new jobs. The proposal now

from countries outside the EU, particularly China. Today's proposal would help
