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

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
