Experts back Google’s stance on Europe’s “right to be forgotten” law

34 sec read

Almost a year ago the European Union made it so that companies like Google would be forced to remove personal information from their search results of the information was deemed “no longer relevant.” Although it was forced to comply, Google has still been fighting against the new law and now an advisory group has sided with the company. 

A Google-backed advisory group has sided with the search giant in the debate in the so-called “right to be forgotten,” which gives citizens of the European Union the option to have some personal information erased from search engines. On Friday, the advisory group of experts — including advocates, politicians, academics and even Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales — published a 44-page report backing up Google’s stance that the regulations should apply only within the European Union. In May 2014, the EU ruled that companies like Google must allow citizens the option to have personal information delisted from European search engines if the information is no longer “relevant.” Google complied.
