Painter demands Google remove search results for *positive* news story

(Poynter): http://www.poynter.org/latest-news/mediawire/269167/google-forced-by-european-law-to-remove-positive-article/

    The article ran in the U.K.'s Worcester News in 2009, and unlike
    many of the articles memory-holed by the law, was positive.  Roach
    objected to the piece, however, because it showed work that "bears
    little resemblance to the paintings I'm now making," he told the
    News. He added: "The decision to ask for the link to be removed
    from Google was based on no more than a wish to highlight my new
    work, rather than the old."
