EU Data Protection Authorities: Guidelines for Global Implementation of "Right to be Forgotten"

On 26 November 2014, the European data protection authorities assembled in the Article 29 Working Party (WP29) have adopted guidelines on the implementation of the judgment of the Court of Justice of European Union (CJEU) of 13 May 2014 in Google Spain SL and Google Inc. v Agencia Española de Protección de Datos (AEPD) and Mario Costeja González (C-131/12), CRi 2014, p. 77 with remarks from US perspective by Spelman/Towle, p. 85, and remarks from an Irish perspective by Tobin, p. 87. These Guidelines contain the common interpretation of the ruling as well as the common criteria to be used by the data protection authorities when addressing complaints. The Guidelines request effective implementation of the CJEU's judgment on a global scale including all relevant ".com" domains which makes it all the more interesting to realise how such "right to be forgotten" constitutes a challenge to free speech rights recognized by the Constitution of the United States(see Brown, "The Right to be Forgotten: U.S. Rulings on Free Speech Won"t Let Google Forget", CRi 6/2014, pp. 161).
