Google says could take several weeks to honour people's requests to be 'forgotten'
Google has reportedly said that it could take several weeks to figure a way to comply with a European Court of Justice ruling that it honour people's requests to be "forgotten".
According to News 24, the EU's top court ruled on Tuesday that individuals have the right to ask the US internet giant to delete personal data and "be forgotten" online under certain circumstances when their personal data becomes outdated or inaccurate
While Google did not reveal details about the kind of requests received, online reports suggest that they include a paedophile and a politician who want references to their pasts to be deleted from the search site.
The decision has raised concerns about online censorship and how internet search works in various countries, the report added.
