11 Sep EU’s Highest Court to Decide on Google Privacy Case
The European Court of Justice is set to decide on a data privacy case this week which pits France’s data privacy watchdog against Google on the matter of the “right to be forgotten.”
The Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés, or CNIL, argues that the right should be extended to anywhere in the world since information such as revenge porn or past convictions could still harm the individual if it is still accessible outside Europe.
Meanwhile, Google says that Europe does not have the right to impose its own views on other countries. It could also set a precedent which other countries such as China and Russia might follow.
