thats where you see how big google is, the court instruct them to disable that part, they say "we look into it" other would disable it completely and maybe find a way just to remove that persons name. They are not scared to get big fines or something. I never thought this autocomplete was a good idea, I rather have my own.

No matter how they tweak auto-complete, it is problematic that something negative or offensive will come up. IMHO it is a no win situation.

@Marshall yes your going from indxing what others say to making editorial judgement about a query.
And no "an algorithem did it" is not a defence that is going to work.
I thought that this would end in tears about 30 seconds after I saw autocomplete for the first time.

Autocompete is now a basic part of the human/computer interface. No amount of lawsuits are going to make it go away.
I doubt that the guy in question really had a hard time finding work because of autocomplete, that was just something they had to throw in to give the law suit a chance of success. Seems unlikely that whoever was googling him at his potential employer was that ignorant.
