Starting today, I'm going to be reading a news article, summarizing it, drawing something inspired by it (or something else), and then posting them here. :)
SO, without further ado, in today's news:
The European Union Court of Justice has ruled that links to "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant" information should be removed upon request of the individual it concerns.
The ruling was a resolution to a case in which a Spanish man, Mario Costeja Gonzalez, complained that a search of his name brought up links to 16 year old news articles about him selling his property to recover money he owed, which he thought should no longer be linked to him because the problem was resolved.
The ruling backs a law proposed by the European Commission on the "right to be forgotten" in 2012. The court says that people can request for information to be taken down by contacting the operator of the search engine which will then decide the merit of the request.
