Europeans have already been asking Google to forget them, since a ruling by a European Union court allowed for European citizens to have the right to be forgotten in search results. The requirements for people requesting to be forgotten are that the information must be inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant. If the search result meets one of those three criteria, it will no longer show up in Google or Bing results in Europe. The link, however, will still exist and the search result will still appear in other parts of the world. While this is meant to protect peoples privacy, some have already taken advantage of this with Google, getting them hide items such as this BBC story and several Guardian pieces, that reflected poorly on their subjects. Politicians with poor track records and businesses seeking to hide bad reviews have also gotten on board.
