BGH to the right to be Forgotten: Who decides whom to Google forgets

The Internet never forgets. What circulates once in the network, it remains in circulation. But how to find it, about search engines determine corporations such as Google. Their Algorithms and settings, not from the outside to come to appear that one or the other term or name good news or bad news, posts with a positive or negative connotation. Negative on the managing Director of the Hessian no longer wanted to see the welfare Association in the case of Google displayed. He took the "right to be Forgotten" and wanted to enforce that article in the regional press from the year 2011 on the financial difficulties of the Association and its sick message at this time will not be displayed, if you put his name in the search mask by typing it in.

This is important. The Supreme court would have decided differently, would he freedom of the press to the grave, and anyone who for any reason do not like might leave, what's his name from Google, the flow of information. Not quite clear, however, what the Supreme court means by the phrase that a search engine provider "needs to not only take action, if he's of a more evident and clear at first glance recognizable violation of the law of the person Concerned acquires knowledge". When and how, exactly, Google needs to be active?
