Google is starting to accept requests from Europeans who want to erase unflattering information from the results produced by the world's dominant search engine.The demands can be submitted on a Web page that Google opened late Thursday in response to a landmark ruling issued two weeks ago by Europe's highest court.It will also create a divide between how Google generates search results about some people in Europe and the rest of the world. For now at least, Google will only scrub personal information spanning a 32-nation swath in Europe. More than 500 million people live in the area affected by Google's potential purge of personal information from its European search results.Google will designate another team of its employees to sift through the requests to remove personal information from search results and decide which have grievances that should be honored under the European court ruling.
