European court says Google must amend some search results

AMSTERDAM - A European court has ruled that Google must amend some search results at the request of ordinary people when they show links to outdated, irrelevant information, in an important test of the so-called "right to be forgotten."

In an advisory judgment stemming from a Spanish case, the Court of Justice of the European Union said that Google has control of individuals' private data, given that it sometimes compiles and presents links to it in a systematic way.

Google had argued that it doesn't control personal data, it just offers links to information already freely and legally available on the Internet.

The court said users may approach Google to request links to personal data be removed under some circumstances.
