Google ready for E.U. privacy ruling

|By:, SA News Editor

Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is ready for action as the new European Court of Justice's “right to be forgotten” ruling goes into effect today.

From Friday and onwards, an online form allows a request to censor links or damaging information.

Google has announced plans to create a Europe-based committee made up of outside experts to conduct hearings and deal with the new privacy concerns.

Although Google will be able to handle the new law, CEO Larry Page warns of risks damaging the next generation of internet start-ups.
