Google Not Required to Extend “Right to be Forgotten” Globally, EU Top Court Advisor Says


European Court of Justice Advocate General Maciej Szpunar said last Thursday that Google can choose not to extend “right to be forgotten” rules globally.

In a preliminary opinion on the case involving the US search giant France’s data privacy regulator CNIL, Szpunar said that the court “should limit the scope of the de-referencing that search engine operators are required to carry out.”

It is said that while opinions from the advocate general are not binding, the court typically follows them when it hands down its ruling.
