Abstract: The EU’s Court of Justice has ruled against Google in a case in which a Spanish citizen, backed by his national data protection authority, wanted the company to remove search links to an old local newspaper story related to his bankruptcy. Jef Ausloos of of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law and ICT (ICRI) of the University of Leuven explains some key issues in the case, arguing that implications should not be too extreme, but warns of the Court’s prioritising of data subjects over internet users.
