Bing follows Google in allowing Europeans to be forgotten online

Microsoft has begun accepting requests to remove results on Bing for searches on some individuals in Europe. The move follows similar changes by Google, after a landmark ruling by the European Union Court of Justice determined that its Google and Microsoft’s responsibility to remove outdated or irrelevant search results hosted by third parties. Microsoft’s request form includes questions about requestors roles in society, and requires ID to verify individuals. While Microsoft has remained quiet on the EU ruling, Google has publicly stated its problems with the judgement, saying that it contradicts the information on freedom of expression in the UNs Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and that the language used by the court means the removal of results comes after very vague and subjective tests as to whether the information is of public interest.
