Google ordered to suspend Auto-Complete in Japan

Japanese court orders Google to stop query auto-complete.

A Tokyo District Court has ordered Google to suspend the query auto-complete feature because it violates the privacy of a person. The man claimed in the law suit that his name got associated with false allegations through auto-complete. His name is shown in context of criminality and this situation prevented him from finding a job. 

This is clearly a problem for the accuser, but to switch off auto-complete cannot be the solution. Instead Google should disable it only for the man's name.
