Google Received Over 144,000 'Right To Be Forgotten' Requests

If Google thinks 144,000 "right to be forgotten" requests is a lot, just wait until they are forced to start doing that here in the US.

In its latest Transparency report, Google said Friday that it has received a total of 144,907 "right to be forgotten" requests since the process began May 29. Those requests themselves encompass 497,507 different webpages. Among the nearly 500,000 page links asked to be taken down, the company has so far removed 170,506 (41.8 percent) and declined to remove 237,561 (58.2 percent).
