GOOGLE'S NIGHTMARE: European Court Rules That People Have A 'Right To Be Forgotten'

• Business Insider

The European Union Court of Justice ruledВ that people should have "the right to be forgotten," which includes erasing traces of their digital past from the internet.

The ruling was sparked by a complaint from a man in Spain, who claimed to the Spanish data-protection agency that an auction notice of his repossessed home that appeared in Google's search results infringed his privacy.

Mario Costeja Gonzalez initially filed the complaint in March 2010 against Google Inc., Google Spain, and a major Spanish newspaper that had published an announcement regarding the auction notice in 1998, according to court documents published by the European Union Court of Justice.
