Google Backed on Limiting Search Results Over Right to Be Forgotten


A senior adviser to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has backed Google’s legal bid to limit individuals’ “right to be forgotten” to searches in Europe.

Google sought to limit the law’s scope, after France asked for it to be extended globally.

The law lets people ask Google to remove information deemed “inaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant or excessive” from its search engine.

ECJ rulings typically follow the adviser’s decision.The court is scheduled to make a decision about which nations were subject to the right later in 2019.
