A Paris court has ruled that Google must take down links to webpages with allegedly defamatory content within a month of the 16 September ruling or face fines of EUR 1,000 per day for two months, reports Les Echos. The case was brought in June by private individuals who objected to articles they consider libellous in search results when searching their name. They based their complaint on a European Court of Justice decision in May that upheld the "right to be forgotten" online. Google told the newspaper that it was studying its different options.
