Microsoft Will Start Taking Right to be Forgotten Requests

Google has taken many removal requests under the EU's “right to be forgotten” ruling, and now Microsoft will follow their example. Google has received over 70,000 requests to remove more than 250,000 links from the search engine's European sites. Microsoft’s Bing search engine has only who only a 2.5 per cent share of the European search market, reports Reuters, but will nevertheless follow suit.

 

Both search engines guarantee the “right to be forgotten,” following the EU Court of Justice ruling in May that implies all “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” information to be removed from the Internet.

 

Microsoft's request form is available on Bing in a four-part questionnaire. All European citizens who wish to have some search results on Bing blocked can use the form. Bing claims that, “This information will help us to consider the balance between your individual privacy interest and the public interest in protecting free expression and the free availability of information, consistent with European law.”

Bing does not guarantee, however, that a certain search result will be blocked by solely making the request. Bing also warns that given the fact that many issues regarding the ruling have been raised, the request form and processes may be subject to change and that submissions may be reassessed with time.

 

After the European Court's ruling, Google received the most requests, over 12,000, from Germany, and more than 8,400 from the UK. Google has removed links to articles and images from the Telegraph, the Independent, and Mail Online.
