The Suggest feature in the Google search is defamatory, if approached as a person in words which may undermine the professionalism and dignity. This was established by the Milan Court, upholding an appeal by a citizen who felt defamed by the words that Google Suggest automatically associated with his name.

The court dismissed the complaint and the company’s California-based company has imposed to eliminate quell’accostamento, charging the costs of litigation. Remarkable story, because it feeds the notion that the algorithms are not neutral, and makes the search engines be liable to web content indexed.
