A convicted criminal has won his legal bid to force Google to remove search results that repeat the original allegations against him. The man argued that his human rights are continually being infringed by the adverse publications and that this affected his ability to find jobs and to form friendships.
The French court ordered Google to disassociate the plaintiff from specific search results and to pay him compensations as well as a fine for every additional day that the defamatory results are published.
