Google Must Wipe Out Compromising Photos of Max Mosley From Its Search Database, French Court says.

Consistent with EU's principle of the "right to be forgotten", can one require search giant Google to wipe out troubling photos or other information? This goes to the heart of the tension of free speech/free flows of information vs. rights to privacy. While Max Mosley does not cut a very sympathetic figure, this is a fascinating test case. We'll see if this decision holds in France (my guess is "yes"). How long will it be before these trends/impulses find their way across the pond?
