The right to be forgotten on the Internet

Search providers such as Google could be forced to remove links to news stories about individuals from its search results, following a ruling of 13 May 2014 by the European Court of Justice, backing the EU's drive to introduce a "right to be forgotten" or "right of erasure" on the Internet.

The ruling by the European Union Court of Justice came after a Spanish man complained to the Spanish data protection agency that an auction notice of his repossessed home on Google's search results infringed his privacy.

This right of erasure is less straightforward than it sounds. The court didn't establish an absolute right to vanish; instead "a fair balance" should be sought between the public's right to access given information and the "data subject's" right to privacy and data protection.

The ruling has the potential to drastically alter the privacy landscape. Watch this space!
