Wikipedia founder: Google EU ruling 'won't work'

The co-founder of Wikipedia says the EU ruling to remove search results about individuals that are irrelevant or outdated won't work.

Jimmy Wales told the BBC's Andrew Marr that the "global" nature of the internet is a challenge to a ruling which only applies in Europe.

The entrepreneur also said that that the naming similarities between Wikipedia and Wikileaks causes "confusion".
