Google Adapting Its Approach To The Right To Be Forgotten

Google confirmed today that it is changing the way it handles the right to be forgotten requests. From now on, Google will delist right to be forgotten people from all of its domains when accessed from the country of the person requesting the removal.

Starting next week, in addition to our existing practice, we will also use geolocation signals (like IP addresses) to restrict access to the delisted URL on all Google Search domains, including google.com, when accessed from the country of the person requesting the removal. We’ll apply the change retrospectively, to all delistings that we have already done under the European Court ruling.
