    "Google has launched a service to allow Europeans to ask for personal data to be removed from online search results."

    not really surprising given recent litigation. Europe is on the whole more wary about search than the U.S. etc is.

    This sounds like a good idea, but I see a lot of back logged requests, on Google's end

    I'd more than likely want to take advantage of this, but I really don't see anything like it coming to the U.S. anytime soon

      Europe is such a big market I wouldn't be surprised if Google made a worldwide change. They hand out penalties so liberally that it's not a big step to think that one can "penalize" sites for this, especially considering that these generally aren't competitive market keywords, and it is the keywords themselves (your own name) requesting the changes
