What's the talk about?

In May the European Court of Justice controversially ruled that individuals have the legal right to require that search engines to remove links connecting them to webpages containing information that is irrelevant or outdated. Since then over 100,000 requests the removal of links have been made to Google alone. 

What is the background to this decision, how did the case come before the court, what did the court actually decide and what are the implications for search engines, for the media and for the public?
