Google has removed over 70,000 Internet links, amid accusations it is trying to promote critical reactions to a EU court ruling by targeting major media outlets.

The US firm on Thursday (3 July) said it was getting around 1,000 “right to be forgotten” requests a day.

The EU court in Luxembourg in May ruled the search giant should delete links on searches done on the basis of a person’s name if found “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant.” …

It's actually kind of cute and sort of an Easter Egg. You see an outline of the Google logo with some moving dots to the right. Click on the dots and the parade begins. Surprised me.

I think this is just a warning salvo. If some elected politician gets real obnoxious to Google, they can just refuse all searches to his name or office, but still keep up those for his political opponents.

In effect, on the Internet, he would become a non-person, for about 90 plus percent of users.

Opponents would quickly learn to not even use his name in their election advertisements for his office.

Google could even throw it back in that politician’s face, by saying that he is “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant”, based on some anonymous complainant.
