Google on Thursday decided to change its decision to remove links to stories in Britain's Guardian newspaper and BBC as part of the implementation of Europe's "right to be forgotten" court ruling.
The Guardian's story that was initially asked to be removed fom Google search in Europe described how a soccer referee lied about reversing a penalty decision.
BBC's article described how former Merrill Lynch Chief Executive Officer E. Stanley O'Neal was ousted after the investment bank racked up billions of dollars in losses.
In May, a European court ruling gave its citizens the "right to be forgotten:" to request the scrubbing of links to articles that pop up under a name search.
Google has already received more than 70,000 removal requests. It had previously notified the BBC and the Guardian, which in turn publicized the moves.
Privacy advocates talked about press censorship and it seems that the "right to be forgotten" ruling is not easy to be applied in practice. Google had also criticized the ruling from the outset.
