We blogged about the European Union’s Supreme Court equivalent ruling that Google must take down links to information about individuals if they request it. Well, the requests are pouring in.
Google has received fresh takedown requests after a European court ruled that an individual could force it to remove “irrelevant and outdated” search results, the BBC has learned.An ex-politician seeking re-election has asked to have links to an article about his behaviour in office removed.
A man convicted of possessing child abuse images has requested links to pages about his conviction to be wiped.
And a doctor wants negative reviews from patients removed from the results.
Google itself has not commented on the so-called right-to-be-forgotten ruling since it described the the European Court of Justice judgement as being “disappointing”.
