Speaking to the Globe and Mail and CBC, MLI Managing Director Brian Lee Crowley responded to a recently announced decision from Europe’s top court that limits how long personal data can be discovered through search engines.
The European Court of Justice ruled that Internet giant Google has to comply with people’s requests that it remove web sites, such as news stories, from web search results about them.
Crowley told the Globe that the decision “fundamentally changes our ability to use the Internet and its accumulated resources as a historical record”.
