The right to be forgotten: first decision delivered in application of CJEU jurisprudence
The Google Spain decision delivered by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) on 13 May 2014 upheld the possibility, subject to certain conditions, for Internet users to ask search engine operators to de-reference links appearing in hits for searches on their names. The operators, starting with Google, have put de-referencing request forms online for Internet users to fill in. Since operators have not always complied with these requests, a number of French courts have been called on to deal with a number of cases involving the CJEU’s criteria, and the first judgments under the urgent procedure have been handed down.
