It has been around for a while the fact that in Europe you are entitled to be forgotten by asking Google to delete the link in its index, which allows to perform any kind of search. The actual web page is not deleted, but the link that allows any user to find the information is.
Is it censorship?
As reported in The Guardian this is censorship for a simple reason: to suppress the system by which we access information equals to suppress the information. Because of how 2.0 society works, which is basically based on web search that gives anybody the access to information in a tree like structure, deleting the link is deleting information.
I am surprised how such action has not been carefully investigated by Google, as each case needs individual understanding. I am surprised how much zealously naive such action has been taken. If on one hand the European law pursued the protection of individual citizens’ privacy , it looks that it is more defending the interests of those in need to be remembered.
