Google in ‘right to be forgotten’ talks with regulator

Google is in talks with regulators over nearly 50 “right to be forgotten” cases it is accused of getting wrong.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said it hoped to resolve the dispute during a round of talks, but noted that it had enforcement powers available should they fail.

Google said it was taking its responsibilities seriously.

The news comes exactly one year since the controversial ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union.

Along with other search engines, the internet giant has been obliged to remove links to articles that contain “inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant” information about an individual.

Under the decision, the person named must make a request to have the links removed from the results for a specific search.

Google has consistently said that it considers it a mistake to make it the arbiter in such cases, as the ruling effectively does.
