After Losing Appeal, Google Moves to Block Scope of European Privacy Right

Google has indicated that it does not intend to comply with a judgement of the high court in Europe after earlier losing its appeal in Google v. Spain. Earlier this year, the French Data Protection agency, consistent with the landmark decision of the European Court of Justice, instructed Google to delist certain links in all domains in which the search company operates. A recently leaked version of a Google transparency report found that the vast majority of requests for delisting concern private matters of private individuals. Support for the "right to be forgotten" continues to grow around the world with courts in Japan, Canada, and the United States acknowledging similar claims.
