    Right to be forgotten: BBC publishes list of its stories removed by Google Read more

    Am I alone in that I find this somewhat disturbing?

    It’s just over 12 months since the European Court of Justice issued its controversial “right to be forgotten” ruling, giving those living in Europe the right to request the removal of links to Web pages containing information deemed to be irrelevant, out of date, or inappropriate.

    Since its introduction in May last year, Google and other major search engines have been inundated with requests from individuals seeking to get links removed, the majority related to news stories. As you might expect, many Europe-based news outlets have been deeply troubled by the development, citing concerns over censorship and transparency.

    Making something of a mockery of the ruling, an increasing number of news organizations, the Guardian, Telegraph, and the Daily Mail among them, have been publishing on their websites links to all of the news stories that have been purged from Google’s European search sites.
