Google forced to e-forget a company worldwide
Here we go.... Canadian company wins case to censor search results for its competitors.
When Google argued that Canadian law couldn't be applied to the entire world, the court responded by citing British Columbia's Law and Equity Act, which grants broad power for a court to issue injunctions when it's "just or convenient that the order should be made."

Google also tried to argue against the injunction on the basis of it amounting to censorship. The court responded that there are already entire categories of content that get censored, such as child abuse imagery.

Will this be the first of a new wave of requests for company website take-downs?
