Right to Be Forgotten: ARTICLE 19 calls on Google and Data Protection Watchdogs to protect free speech

Today, ARTICLE 19 is giving evidence before Google’s Advisory Council on the so-called right to be forgotten. The Advisory Council was set up in the aftermath of the Google Spain v Costeja judgment, in which EU’s top court ruled that individuals had the right to request Google and other search engines operating in the European Union ('EU') to remove links to results generated by a search for their name. The Advisory Council has been holding a series of hearings across Europe in Madrid, Rome, Paris, Warsaw, Berlin and now London. The Council will then report on its findings.
