I'd start building a list of websites that are native European, and when this goes into affect, start posting posting a ton of content to those sites via TOR.

Right now, Duckduckgo's first link is a Wikipedia article about Thomas Goolnik that has all the gorey details about Goolnik's problems with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and the FTC, and subsequent uses of RTBF requests.
