EU court: Google must delete inaccurate search info if asked


Google has to delete search results about people in Europe if they can prove that the information is clearly wrong, the European Union’s top court said Thursday. 

The European Court of Justice ruled that search engines must “dereference information” if the person making the request can demonstrate that the material is “manifestly inaccurate.” 

People in Europe have the right to ask Google and other search engines to delete links to outdated or embarrassing information about themselves, even if it is true, under a principle known as “right to be forgotten.”
