Ahhhh German censorship!

A year or so ago, Theodora Prinzessin zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg got into legal trouble in Scotland.  She pleaded not guilty.  She was fined £1000 in July 2014.

You won't find this case mentioned in the German media because of "privacy" laws.  But there are plenty of stories -- and some really nasty ones too.  All I did was report the facts of the case, nothing salacious.   Theodora's lawyers (most likely funded by Daddy) tried to get me to remove stories last year. I pointed out a US law that protects me. I also sent links to really nasty articles, and added that the Daily Mail gets a lot more readers than I do ... and I bet the lawyers would not go after them.  Got the following email today. 

The story is still on my blog, but no longer accessible if you go through  The EU passed a law several years ago about the right to "forgotten."  Several German newspapers, covering the Germanwings crash, would not publish the name of the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, who committed mass murder.

This is censorship at the highest level.  One assumes a cover up to hide the fact that  an adult woman, with some anger issues, and a big, potty mouth.  She made racist statements, and got fined.  There should be no expunging of such bad behavior.

One finds the case mentioned in German media.... Focus, one of the most known papers.

i just don't understand why there is an issue with you reporting what she was charged with at all. why is her family freaking out, what is their complaint? it isn't slander if it's true, and you're simply reporting facts, so i don't understand what their grounds for having the post removed would be.

The EU has a law called the "right to be forgotten," which allows people "erase" material about them, in legal cases, etc.

So if you read my blog in Germany, you won't be able to see the story, as it was removed. People can apply to Google and other search engines to have material removed from search engine searching.
