Google plans to send a team executives, lawyers, and internet experts around Europe to explain its stance on online privacy as early as this fall. According to the New York Times, the group will include executive chairman Eric Schmidt and lead counsel David Drummond. It will also include Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, who has been a very strong critic of online information removal. The group will meet with local experts as well as the public in six European countries, and it will spend up to nine months overseas. This tour is in response to European court's landmark ruling on requiring Google to remove links that violate individual's privacy. Since the ruling, Google has received more than 80,000 requests from internet users who wanted links to contents about them removed.
