Google is about to remove its first link to a Wikipedia page, to comply with the European Union’s 'Right to be Forgotten' ruling, according to Jimmy Wales. The identity of the individual requesting the removal has not been disclosed, but the request will reportedly be put into effect "within days". The web page itself will remain on Wikipedia. This is the first time an entry to the online encyclopedia will be removed from Google search, and follows the removal of links to thousands of web pages – including some on The Telegraph website. The EU's Right to be Forgotten legislation allows European citizens to request that links to "inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant" information be removed from search results. The Wikipedia founder protested the move in an interview with The Observer on Sunday, describing the legislation as "completely insane" and calling for it to be changed.
