28 Feb Google Receives 2.4 Million ‘Right to be forgotten’ Requests
Google recently revealed in its semi-regular transparency report that it has complied with 43% of the 2.4 million “right to be forgotten” (RTBF) requests that it has received.
A result of a Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruling in 2014, the RTBF or “right to delist” grants European users the power to request the removal of websites that contain irrelevant, out-of-date, or potentially “damaging” information.
Google has also published a research paper called Three Years of the Right to be Forgotten, which intends to explain the effect of the RTBF on information access.
