Google must delete your data if you ask, EU rules - Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/google/10827005/Google-must-delete-your-data-if-you-ask-EU-rules.html)


The European Unionís top court has ruled that data about individuals held by Google must be deleted on request.
Judges in the European Court of Justice ruled that Google cannot link to personal information about an individual, although the ruling only compels Google to remove the link rather than the removal of the information from the web itself. This means users of Facebook, Twitter and other social media can still share personal information about others so long as it remains online.

This may make our job slightly harder.

They're going to be kinda screwed because they need the links to lead to their operations. I can't wait til they show up here and try citing this ruling as a reason to delete their crap. lol

The EUROPEAN UNIONS' top court

Good luck with trying to enforce the ruling anywhere outside of the EU.

Even Google.co.uk servers are in CA.
So, I don't know how enforceable it's really going to be.
