Google has begun removing results for searches on some individuals in Europe, in compliance with a controversial court ruling that established the so-called right to be forgotten. As the Wall Street Journal reports, the company has added a disclaimer to all searches for peoples names, noting that results may have been removed. The note is placed at the bottom of search pages, and only appears on Google searches conducted from Europe. The move follows a landmark ruling handed down last month by the European Union Court of Justice, which determined that its Googles responsibility to remove outdated or irrelevant search results hosted by third parties. Some results may have been removed under the data protection law in Europe. In a statement to The Verge last month, Google described the decision as a disappointing ruling for search engines and online publishers in general, though it swiftly complied.
