Google Will Only Remove European Search Results Under 'Right to Be Forgotten'
Contrary to regulators' guidelines, Google is only removing search results from European websites when individuals invoke their "right to be forgotten." The privacy issue has been one of much debate ever since Europe's top court ruled in May that individuals could have "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant" information removed from search results. Google has adamantly supplied that the ruling should only apply to its European sites, while EU privacy watchdogs argue search results should be scrubbed globally because of the ease with which users can switch from a European domain to Google.com. A privacy report on the issues as well as further court rulings on the issue are yet to come.
