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.
