Google Ordered To Kill Links To 'Right To Be Forgotten' Stories

I guess it is hard to be "forgotten" when everyone keeps talking about (and linking) stories about the right to be forgotten. big grin

The whole point of the European Union's "right to be forgotten" laws is to remove links to irrelevant or outdated data about a persons life from Google, but a vicious cycle of news about the removal of links to news is making that impossible. Think about it: Google removes links about your sordid past from its search engine, but then adds a news story about that link removal that still includes your name and the old misdemeanor.
