Google Takes First Step in Giving Europeans Right to Be Forgotten

Google Takes First Step in Giving Europeans Right to Be Forgotten

TheStreet (May 30, 2014) — Europeans unhappy with Google search results about themselves can now apply to have the links removed. In its first step to comply with a European Commission ruling earlier this month that people have the "right to be forgotten" over the Internet, Google has created an online form for requesting that links be erased from search results. The ruling states that Europeans can ask Google to stop linking to anything that's "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed." Citizens can appeal to Google on behalf of others as well. Video provided by TheStreet

EU Court Slams Google, Says People Have 'Right to Be Forgotten' Online

TheStreet (May 13, 2014) — The European Union's Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that people have the right to make Google delete information about them in search results. The justices sided with privacy advocates who argued that people should have a right to erase their online lives. The ruling stemmed from a case involving a Spanish man who claimed that a home foreclosure notice, which was published by a local newspaper 16 years ago, should no longer be linked to him. Google says it was "disappointed" with the decision and will look at what it will mean for its business. Google is facing privacy investigations around the world as it continues to add services and see increasing competition with Facebook for users and advertisers. Video provided by TheStreet
