Revenge Pornography, The Right to be Forgotten and Google – Part 3

Google have announced that they will remove links from Google search results that show revenge pornography images.  You can read the full article here.  Google acknowledge this won’t stop revenge pornography, it still requires the individual to request that the image links are removed, but it is a great start.  It is also great that Google recognise that “revenge porn images are intensely personal and emotionally damaging, and serve only to degrade the victims—predominantly women”

More of this please!
