Reed Smith’s Global Regulatory Enforcement Law Blog features a post on a recent set of guidelines issued by the European Union’s Article 29 Data Protection Working Party outlining how EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) intend to implement the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union in Google Spain SL and Google Inc. v Agencia Española de Protección de Datos (AEPD) and Mario Costeja González (C-131/12) (Google Spain), which set a milestone for EU data protection by granting individuals the right to request that search engines to delist search results relating to them. The guidelines provide a common interpretation of the ruling as well as the common criteria to be used by the DPAs when addressing complaints.
