SPAIN’S data protection agency is up against Google in court following claims that the search engine conflicts with the country’s privacy laws.
AEPD instructed Google to remove links to websites that carry old or inaccurate information about people.
But the internet giant claims that the publishers of such information should be forced to act, not the search engine, and told Madrid’s high court that removing search results would be censorship.
The watchdog maintains that Google breaks Spain’s ‘right to be forgotten’ law which allows people to control information about them.
