Submission + - Google Forces Sweden to Remove 'Ungoogleable' From Official Words List (ibtimes.co.uk) 1

DavidGilbert99 writes: "Google is obviously the king of the search engines but even it doesn't want people searching for particular words.
At the end of 2012 Sweden decided that it would include "ogooglebar" (which translates as ungoogleable) into its lexicon. However, three months in 2013, it has been forced to remove it following pressure from Google's lawyers.
However the head of the Language Council of Sweden has said this is not the end of the word, as it will ultimately be up to the people of Sweden if they use it or not."
