Google in the High Court Over Right to be Forgotten

Google in the High Court Over Right to be Forgotten

The data showed that since the ruling came into effect (May 2014) up to February 2018, Google has received some 2.4 millions URLs delisting requests, and 43% of these URLs ended up being delisted.

In the report, Google says there are "two dominant intents for RTBF delisting requests". The ruling held that Google (googl) must remove links to material about a person, if that individual asks it to do so, and if the information is "inaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant or excessive". Roughly a third (33 percent) of requests are related to personal information on social media and directory sites. Just 1,000 people (0.25% of the people who filed requests) accounted for 15% of the URLs submitted for delisting.

In a company "transparency report" and research paper released this week, Google said most of those requests were to remove five or fewer URLs from its search results.

However, the majority of right to be forgotten requests involve the de-listing of content and web pages from URLs that don't fit any of Google's established categories. Minors make up 5 percent the private individual requester group.

In another case of when Google denied to comply with the request, the company mentions a British man who was convicted of benefits fraud and asked the search giant to delist almost 300 articles related to the conviction.

A businessman from London has taken Google to court because he believes that people should be able to ask the firm to remove references to previous convictions from search results. Google has revealed that since then, it has received 2.4 million URL removal requests, a move that was made in an effort to expand transparency reports further. Such groups mainly included law firms and reputation-management agencies, and nearly half of them are based in Germany, France and the United Kingdom, notes ZDNet. As for the takedown's reasons, it looks 18.1 percent of the submissions want their professional info scrubbed, 7.7 percent want info they previously posted online themselves to be removed and 6.1 percent want their crimes hidden from search.

The search results people see in countries outside Europe are not affected. "We may also determine that the page contains information which is strongly in the public interest", the company explained.

The dpa news agency reported the Federal Court of Justice ruled Tuesday that Google does, however, have to react when "concrete evidence" of violations of law, such as child pornography or acts of violence, are reported.

Google delisted all the requested 239 URLs.
