Re: A search engine should be an index

"If it finds unpleasant articles get those taken down rather than the search, then the search cannot find them."

The articles themselves are reports of then current events published from newspaper archives under journalistic protection.

All you have to do to accomplish your objective is get yourself elected to Parliament, put up a private members' bill to remove that protection from the DPA while simultaneously getting into the EU to get it removed from the GDPR as your amended DPA would cause grave problems if it didn't reflect GDPR.

An essential aspect of the court hearing was to establish what the law is in this regard. If you think that's in some way wrong you need to change the law.
