Google getting one request every seven seconds to hide someone’s past… but Wikipedia founder says ‘right to be forgotten’ is doomed to fail 

  • People can ask that certain information about them be hidden on Google
  • EU court decision said search engines must enforce ‘right to be forgotten’
  • Google bosses say form was used 12,000 times on first day of availability
  • Wikipedia founder: ‘It won’t work because of the global scale of the web’

The scope of the rule – against which there is no appeal – is not yet clear. The BBC, which runs an archive of news stories dating back to the 1990s, is also among organisations to receive requests that material cease to be flagged up.
