Leading European privacy organizations have turned down invitations from Google to participate in a series of events organized by the Internet giant, designed to raise questions about a decision of the European Court of Justice regarding the right to privacy. The European Consumer Organization (BEUC), the European Digital Rights Initiative (EDRi), and Privacy International are among several of the groups that are not participating in the Google meetings. EU policymakers have also challenged the company for attacking a judicial decision of the high court of the European Union, describing the tour as a "publicity stunt."
