Microsoft Bing offers users right to be forgotten in Europe

Microsoft's Bing search engine now offers Europeans the ability to be forgotten (NASDAQ:MSFT)

Not long ago Google began offering users in Europe the ability to submit links to content about them that is listed on the search engine and have those links removed. This is known as the right to be forgotten and is the result of a ruling made this year by the top court in Europe.




Microsoft has now launched a four part online form that Europeans can fill in to have content about them removed from the search engine. The form asks for the name and country of residence for the person and details of the pages that they want blocked.


The form also asks if the person is a public figure or is involved in a role that involves trust, leadership, or safety. Microsoft isn't guaranteeing that the content will be removed, but courts allow the person asking for the content to be removed to appeal legally if Microsoft refuses.
