'Right To Be Forgotten' Stores Republished

Pink News has republished several stories removed by 'right to be forgotten' law.


The Pink News website stated that the law was "an infringement on press freedom, and [has] a chilling effect on freedom of speech.

"Given this, we will continue to re-publish lists of content that has been removed from search engines in Europe.

"We have no doubt that this article itself may soon find itself removed from Google and Bing in Europe."

The 'right to be forgotten' law was originally passed in mid-May 2014 in the EU Court of Justice.

The law allows individuals to 'force the removal of links under certain search terms to website articles'.

At the time, Google launched an online application form for removal requests.

Google revealed that it started to receive '1, 000 take-down requests per day'.

In 2015, over 80 national press stories had been removed thanks to the 'right to be forgotten' law.

According to a BBC list, between May 2014 and May 2015 a total of 200 articles had been removed.
