The door to defamation referrals may not be completely closed. But some requests are simply denied without any indication of the reason. And these are the types of requests that used to be reliably suppressed. Why has Google decided to end this practice? We've contacted Google, but they've chosen not to make any official statement at this time. I have been advised that Google may always choose to pursue court-ordered defamation/defamation removal requests if it chooses, on a case-by-case basis.
As their help page has been created, they do not consider themselves legally obligated to do so. For professionals assisting businesses and individuals with legal moves, the lack of explanation around the apparent policy or process change is deeply concerning and fax number list makes it difficult to convey reasonable expectations to defamation victims. And, in many cases, Google's lack of action will create greater hardship for victims, or even eliminate any real remedy. The abrupt change in policy has

Quoting what an insider once told me, “This is a project that doesn't make money for the business and doesn't save money for the business, so it's a low priority.”
