Thus far, 250,000 takedown requests have been made under the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) “right to be forgotten” ruling in May requiring Google to remove links to any content that is “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” or else face a fine, The Telegraph reports. Though the content is not deleted, Google will not list it in its search results. Users searching for a particular topic on google.co.uk will see a message indicating the information has been removed under data protection laws, while those using the U.S. site google.com will be unaffected, even if they live in the UK. The Telegraph has begun a running list of the paper’s content that has been removed from search results.
