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

Apple's Tim Cook Among Tech CEOs on Witness Shortlist in NSA Case

TheStreet (May 22, 2014) — Top executives at some of the nation's leading tech companies may be asked to testify in Germany's investigation into the National Security Agency's data-collection activities, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. The report says German lawmakers may ask Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith to appear as witnesses in the case. The executives would not be required to appear as they are U.S. citizens not present in Germany, according to the report, which cites Roderich Kiesewetter, who sits on the investigation committee. Kiesewetter says the committee hopes the executives would still attend and serve as experts if U.S. authorities prevent them from appearing as witnesses. Video provided by TheStreet
