People's bad decisions should not follow them forever online, says the European Union's highest court in a decision on Tuesday. The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg ruled that, in certain cases, users may demand that Google remove information about them from its search engine. The case revolves around Mario Costeja Gonzalez, a lawyer in Spain, who sued Google to take down links related to a house of his that was repossessed in 1998. "This is a disappointing ruling for search engines and online publishers in general," Google spokesman Al Verney said.

Once again demonstrating that Europe is way ahead of our nation in so many ways. Fear not Google, our government is up for sale to the highest bidder and our elected officials and judges would never bite the googly hand that feeds them by protecting the privacy of Americans.

We need to disappoint them over here too.

Which "Mario Costeja Gonzalez" are they talking about?

Its absurd....

You want the pleasure and convenience of the Internet, but not the cost.

Its a server problem, not a google problem...

You could ask the public record be private, but eliminating a name from Internet search is next to impossible.

This is part of the excuse that the fascistis will use censor the internet. And the moronic sheeple will stupidly allow it.

If you don't want to be found on google don't use a computer.

If this stands it should have a side order banning the requesting party from owning any internet connected device.

Europe - where people still matter and corporations haven't taken over everything yet.

In the united states, it doesn't matter if every single person wants to have online privacy - corporations DON'T want you to have privacy, and only corporations matter because of our twisted private election funding system.

Perhaps there should be no investigation or history of people or events except what the individual or establishment deems politically correct and acceptable for public consumption. We already have events like 9-11 and the Holocaust that fit this criteria.

Oops forgot the USS Liberty.

It won't be long before the owners of the consolidated media and our digitized textbooks and history will be as malleable as a piece of propagandized putty.

The world will rue the day that permitted the coordinated and consolidated ownership of the media and abuse of free speech through political correctness.
