Microsoft is still working out how it will respond to the European Court of Justice's 'right to be forgotten' ruling in regard to its Bing search engine.
While Google has begun its response with an online form and has already fielded tens of thousands of demands, Microsoft is far behind.
"We're currently working on a special process for residents of the European Union to request blocks of specific privacy-related search results on Bing in response to searches on their names," Microsoft said on its help and information pages.
"Given the many questions that have been raised about how the recent ruling from the European Court of Justice should be implemented, developing an appropriate system is taking us some time. We'll be providing additional information about making requests soon."
V3 asked Microsoft how far advanced its plans are, and put the same question to Yahoo. Neither had replied at the time of publication.
While Google has bent to the ECJ ruling, the firm has done so with apparent reluctance. Chairman Eric Schmidt has made his opinion clear.
"A simple way of understanding what happened here is that you have a collision between a right to be forgotten and a right to know. From Google's perspective that's a balance," he said in May.
"Google believes, having looked at the decision, which is binding, that the balance that was struck was wrong."
