Google must remove links to personal material upon request, European court rules

Google has lost a European court case that forces it to remove personal information from its search engine results. The landmark case, a test of citizens’ \right to be forgotten,\ sees the European Union Court of Justice rule that Google is responsible for content on its servers, and that the search giant must amend some search results when they might show outdated or irrelevant information. It’s a surprise ruling, and one that could have serious ramifications on how Google and other search providers operate in Europe, and further European privacy implications. The ruling follows a case in Spain where a resident asked Google to delete information regarding a house that was auctioned off after his failure to pay taxes.
