Please remove any reference to our company from the internet. You are no longer affiliated with our franchise (actually my company at that time had dropped the franchise) and we don't want any connection of your name with ours on the internet.
This was over 10 years ago and they even threatened legal action if ALL references weren't removed.
I just read Norma Toering's blog about "Please remove my home from the internet". Similar issues arise from sites you don't control.
Even 10+ years ago that was an impossibility. The biggest problem is sites that you don't control. Some of those sites had been abandoned. Others were vendors we'd used years before who had our name and then affiliated company on a list of their clients. Some were news articles. Some were archive sites.
Future Implications ????
