Google hates messing around with its search engine, stating the company’s involvement should be limited to ensuring the relevance of the results, it usually removes search results only once legally forced to do so.
In an uncommon move, however, Google has taken initiative in this matter announcing that it will remove photos of ‘revenge porn’ victims from its search engine’s results.
“In the coming weeks we’ll put up a web form people can use to submit these requests to us,” said Amit Singhal, the senior vice president in charge of Google Search in the company’s blog.
What caused Google suddenly take responsibility for its search results and does this mean Google’s becoming more lenient towards photo take-down requests?
