And eRe4s3r, what is the stance of the German Pirate Party on the 'right to be forgotten' - does the party support or condemn it?

That's a good question actually, but I fear completely irrelevant, the Pirate Party is defacto dead in Germany (sub 1%)

But to answer it anyway, it warned that the judgement while protecting privacy rights of EU citizen also created a legal loophole for censorship, and that any not yet encountered misuse should be swiftly blocked off via addendum to the law.

At the core this law is by the way, not the right to be forgotten.. that's just how the media calls it. The judgement defined that an US company doing business in the EU has to abide to EU data protection laws. And if it does not, it will face SEVERE punishments. Google basically had to eat this judgement and the results because the US courts made it illegal for GOOGLE to actually follow the EU laws.

Hence my saying this is something the US courts caused

To explain to you why Germany is such a big pusher of this, in Germany Google has a ~95% market share. Yes, you read right. Partially because google is really superior to all other search engines in German, and secondly because Firefox came with google by default, and Firefox is also very popular in Germany

Ps.: And yes, this does apply to ALL companies not just google. Not just to search engines either.
