Google to change its implementation of EU’s ‘right to be forgotten’ ruling

An unidentified person close to Google has revealed that the company has efforts underway to bring about a change in the manner in which it is implementing the European Union (EU)'s landmark 'right to be forgotten' ruling.

According to the information shared by the person familiar with Google's plans, the company will remove search results across all its websites when the results are accessed from a European country in which a 'right to be forgotten' request has originated.

Till now, Google has not been scrubbing the search results globally across all the versions of its website when it receives a 'right to be forgotten' request from a European country. The company had, thus far, maintained that, for all 'right to be forgotten' requests originating in the EU, it would remove search results only on European domains like Google. fr or Google. de.

For the manner in which Google has been implementing the EU's May 2014 'right to be forgotten' ruling, the company has been facing objections from privacy regulators in Europe, specifically the French data protection authority.

As such, in order to address the concerns of European privacy regulators, Google will soon change its implementation of the 'right to be forgotten' ruling, by removing search results across all its websites.
