The European Union wants to censor Internet search engines globally!
EU regulators summoned three American search engines (and no European ones) reportedly to admonish them for failing to censor themselves globally, rather than just in Europe, over the “right to be forgotten” ruling, according to some media reports. They’re also reportedly telling Google to keep quiet about the censorship and not tell the sites that are affected.
Censorship: “The change in the access status of material, made by a governing authority or its representatives. Such changes include: exclusion, restriction, removal, or age/grade level changes.” -American Library Association
