A businessman fighting for the "right to be forgotten" has won a UK High Court action against Google.
The man, who has not been named due to reporting restrictions surrounding the case, wanted search results about a past crime he had committed removed from the search engine.
On the other hand...
Google says it has removed 800,000 pages from its results following so-called "right to be forgotten" requests. However, search engines can decline to remove pages if they judge them to remain in the public interest.
In any case, it's interesting that there's a strong tendency towards more privacy protection. It seems to me that the society has had enough of "all new feature and phones now regardless what data is shared", at least for the moment.
