While Google has processed more than 1.7 million requests, its URL removal system is currently working in a way that makes it easier for the outside to find deleted entries. Whenever Google receives a removal complaint, it will automatically forward the request to the popular lument database and replace the original page with the following text: “As a response to the legal request sent to Google, we have removed a search result, you can find more information at LumenDatabase.org.
The current problem is that the link to the original page still appears in lumen, which raises the dissatisfaction of the German authorities. The Munich District Court has issued a ban to the Internet giants that asked the company to stop forwarding the notice to the Lumen and then link to the generated database entry so that the deleted page still appears.
