EU Pushes Google For Worldwide Right To Be Forgotten
Privacy regulators recommend Google expand its requested removals to apply to all its web domains.By Evan Thomas | November 27, 2014
The EU wants Google to push its “right to be forgotten” policy all over the world.
The Wall Street Journal reports a coalition of EU privacy regulators wants Google to extend its removal policy to all of its web domains, including .com addresses.
As it stands, right to be forgotten removals aren’t necessarily forgotten everywhere — a search from the U.S.-based .com domain, for example, can still turn up links that were forgotten from .uk or .fr domains.
