Right to be Forgotten going global

0 comments

The Chronicles of Being Forgotten continue. After both France and the UK have given Google ultimatums, Google has revealed a plan to accept Right to be Forgotten requests worldwide - and yes, that includes google.com and the U.S. market.

However, it should be noted that removals would only occur in the Google edition from the country where the removal request is submitted. For example, if someone from the United States requests a removal, it may be removed from the results for specific terms in google.com, but it would still exist in the results of google.ca if applicable.

Are you excited for this change? Do you think Google will be able to keep up with requests? Will you be requesting the removal of any search results about yourself?
