    If you reside or are visiting the EU, this week became a game changer. Google's search engine has been modified to comply with the regulation to remove links in its search results as part of the Right to be Forgotten ruling.

    In 2014, EU law stated that Google and other companies had to remove people’s personal information from its search engines, providing the information was no longer of interest of the public and is “inadequate, irrelevant, no longer relevant or excessive.”

    In essence, and due to the Right to be Forgotten ruling, just about all search results in Europe are censored – even if you try and perform a search on a Google site outside of the EU.

    The Right to be Forgotten ruling has been nothing short of problematic. Critics argue that powerful people have used the law to remove legitimate news stories and other content from Google search results.

    My question is: How does one determine if the information is no longer of interest to the public and is “inadequate, irrelevant, no longer relevant or excessive"?

    Do people have the right to have personal content removed if it is reported fairly and accurate?

    What are your thoughts?
