OK Chris, you have gone and done it again. Google does not 'take down the links' is simply does not include them in a specific search result when the search is the subject's name. A search on a similar subject may well return the link in the results and that is legal (AFAIK).

An example; on the BBC page it states Google has delisted certain results. One is a story titled; "Man jailed for raping woman as she slept at house in Livingston".

If you search on the text of the story headline it is the first result.

The BBC page also includes this insight;

"Update 29/06/15: Google has asked us to point out that links to the BBC articles below are only delisted from results for queries on certain names. They are not removed from the Google index entirely. We're happy to make that clear."
