A new website is attempting to build a list of search results that have been hidden as a direct result of the EU's controversial "right to be forgotten" law. "This list is a way of archiving the actions of censorship on the Internet," reads the about section at Hidden From Google. "It is up to the reader to decide whether our liberties are being upheld or violated by the recent rulings by the EU." Alongside the relevant search term, you'll find the specific link that was removed from Google's search results.  The site's log is based entirely on news stories that have mentioned censored search terms; there's no direct affiliation with Google or any other search provider.

Interesting since going to a non-EU version of Google will likely give you unfiltered results (unless Google will be required to push EU users back onto EU specific variants)...

 

But it is an interesting issue. This decision is a double edged sword, like most things. I'd be more supportive of getting rid of DMCA requests than I am of getting rid of these...
