Google Loses Landmark "Right to Be Forgotten" Case

A businessman who was convicted 10 years ago of conspiring to intercept communications and spent six months in jail has managed to convince a UK court that Google should take down any web links that reference his past crime. Google argued that such information is in the public’s interest and should be made available.

These include links to web pages published by a national newspaper and other media. Google refused their request and the men took the company to the high court. The decision in NT2’s favor could have implications for other convicted criminals and those who want embarrassing stories about them erased from the web.
