In the journey towards establishing an Open Web Index, a series of vital tasks come into play to ensure its effectiveness, legal adherence, and widespread accessibility. The project aims to legally secure the Open Web Index by subjecting its technical aspects – collection, storage, distribution (and use by end-users) – to legal evaluation. Its goal is to identify obstacles and mitigate legal risks in the process of successful global dissemination.
By adhering to legal standards, adopting a comprehensive strategy, prioritizing data privacy, enhancing accessibility, and establishing a fair licensing framework, we’re poised to revolutionize how we navigate the web, ensuring transparency, inclusivity, and innovation for all.
