Google should not apply 'right to be forgotten' on .com domain, advisory council says
Fri 6 Feb 2015, 14:20

An advisory council put together by Google found that the search engine should only apply the so-called “right to be forgotten” to European Union search domains and not to its international .com domain, which is contrary to what EU privacy regulators want the search engine to do.

Delisting search results only on EU domains is one of the recommendations in a 44-page report released on Friday by the council, whose eight members all volunteered their time.

Google convened the council to advise it on implementing a decision made by the Court of Justice of the European Union in May last year, which gave EU citizens the right to compel search engines to remove search results in Europe for queries that include their names if the results are irrelevant or excessive.

The President of the CNIL has put Google on notice to proceed, within a period of fifteen (15) days, to the requested delisting on the whole data processing and thus on all extensions of the search engine.
