Square Pegs in Triangular Spaces: Right to be Forgotten

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


In Google Inc v Commission nationale de’informatique et des libertes (CNIL) (C-507/17) handed down on 24 September 2019, the European Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) ruled that Google does not have to apply the right to be forgotten globally. This Opinion considers whether the decision has any real effect on the protection of data of the individuals, and whether the current ruling is symptomatic of a general international trend. The Opinion also raises a critical concern about territoriality in disputes surfacing in the cyberspace.
