    How Europe's 'right to be forgotten' will impact GoogleBy Alexei Oreskovic SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc is already getting requests to remove objectionable personal information from its search engine after Europe's top court ruled that subjects have the “right to be forgotten,” a source familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. The world's No. 1 Internet search company has yet to figure out how to handle an expected flood of requests after Tuesday's ruling, said the source, who is not authorized to speak on the record about the issue. The decision by the Court of Justice of the European Union, which affects the region's 500 million citizens, requires that Internet search services remove information deemed “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant.” Failure to do so can result in fines. “There's many open questions,” Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said at the company's annual shareholder meeting on Wednesday in response to a question about the ruling and its implications on Google's operations.
