The Ballad of Google Spain

The judgement of the European Court of Justice in the case Google Spain from May 2014 has caused a very diverse and intense debate that is not finished by far. Though the ruling does not contain this, it has become known as the "right to be forgotten"-ruling, or #R2BF.

The best summary by far has been provided by Paul Bernal. The analysis is very much to the point, but even better: For the national poetry day yesterday, he wrote it in the form of a poem!
The Ballad of Google Spain

There was a case, called ‘Google Spain’
That caused us all no end of pain
Do we have a right to be forgotten?
Are Google’s profits a touch ill-gotten?
