Sorry, had to downvote... :(
The line "But the idea of attaching ownership to digital things is bitterly fought. Google fights every attempt with the response that it "breaks the internet" " put me off reading any further. Sorry.
If you can clarify this, I'll be happy to read the rest.
Google does not complain "privacy" breaks the internet (AFAIK). But that unrestricted access to data breaks some of the important parts like protected online banking. Or that it is impossible to implement at Copyright holders requests at this time.
So the sentence and link is extremely misleading. Did you read the site you linked to?
