A recent judgment handed down by the Court of Justice of the European Union ("CJEU") has forced Google to launch a new service which permits people to request that their personal data is removed from search results.

In this article Ashfords' Chris Coughlan discusses the judgment that confirmed the existence of a "right to be forgotten", and considers the wider implications of the judgment.

The "right to be forgotten" is something that has prompted considerable discussion as the draft Data Protection Regulations have been debated in Europe, and it will be interesting to see if the EU look to revisit this point, following the CJEU judgment, in order to clarify or define the scope of the right.

Chris also commented on the CJEU judgment in the Financial Times on Saturday 7th June 2014.
