Google has received tens of thousands of requests to remove links, after the European Court of Justices ruling on “the right to be forgotten”.
This is rightfully a much debated problem, as it is used to censor information and rewrite history.
But we should remember that Google also has been asked to remove half a billion links due to copyright claims.
This also ought to give rise to public debate–as it is a much more wide-ranging form of censorship. (And in some cases copyright claims are used to suppress free speech in the same way as the right to be forgotten.)
