The U.K. Information Commissioner issued an order to Google this week requiring it to remove nine search results of an individual’s minor criminal offense that was committed close to ten years ago. This is reported to be the first enforcement action since the European Court of Justice held that EU citizens had the right to compel internet search engines to remove links to websites that reference personal information of citizens if the citizen’s right to privacy outweighs the public’s interest in the right to have access to the information.

The Information Commissioner indicated that the links requested to be removed were subject to data protection rules and the links shouldn’t include the personal information of the subject as it was no longer relevant.

Google has not indicated whether it will appeal the order or not.
