Microsoft on Wednesday followed in Googles footsteps by letting people in Europe ask to have links related to them forgotten on its search engine Bing, under the auspices of a court ruling.

Google said it has received more than 70,000 requests since it put a form online on May 30 as a result of the ruling by the European Court of Justice. European news organizations have opened fire on Google for removing links to stories from search results in the name of adhering to the court order.
