One thing that could sabotage attempts to Regulate Data Center Industry, seeing the effect of Regulations
For those who have to implement government regulations one of the few options to influence the regulation is to try and influence the defining of the regulation. Once the regulation is put in place then you can try and negotiate the compliance to the regulation. The hopes of changing the regulation is almost impossible.
For years the regulation on the Data Center Industry was an inevitability. The EU’s “right to be forgotten” regulation on Google and other search engines followed the pattern of governments meeting and playing their political games to create something legally binding. Google fought as hard as they could to prevent the “right to be forgotten” regulation, but it is now in effect. And, we are able to see the effects of the regulation since the results are out there for all to see. Oh oh, the results are not what people thought it would be and the vision of what was sold by the government regulators is not as accurate. There is data to see how effective the regulation is in achieving its goal. The regulators by trying to regulate the data center industry are finding they themselves could be measured as to how well their laws are working.
The Guardian has a post that says the “right to be forgotten” is not enforceable.

Google is cooperating by providing the information that supports seeing the effect of regulation.
