By Robert Hetz MADRID (Reuters) – Mario Costeja, the 58-year-old lawyer and calligrapher from northwestern Spain who fought Google in court to have obsolete personal information removed from Internet searches, said on Friday he was content with the company’s new steps to protect privacy. Internet giant Google, which processes more than 90 percent of all Web searches in Europe, said on Thursday that people can use a new webform to submit requests to have information they find objectionable removed from Web search results. “I want to congratulate Google because they have taken a decision that humanizes a tool that can now be considered perfect,” said Costeja, who comes from Galicia. Six years ago he launched what became a landmark legal action against Google after someone told him that was information on the Internet saying that his home was repossessed due to a tax debt.
