Derecho al olvido en Internet: Google y la doctrina europea

Translated title of the contribution: Right to be forgotten in Internet: Google and the European doctrine

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)peer-review


This essay accounts for part of the moral, social and legal problems behind the attempts for justifying and implementing the so-called right to be forgotten in the Internet. Such right implies that –under certain circumstances–individuals are entitled to demand that search engines remove links containing their personal information. Our inquiry reflects on a ruling issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union and made public on May 13th 2014, as well as on the recommendations conveyed in Article 29 of the Data Protection Working Party, the practice of Google and the report of its Advisory Council.
