After a long battle in the courts, Mario Costeja González saw last May how the Court of Justice of the European Union agreed with him: Google had to delete several results linked to La Vanguardia that appeared when searching by name and who attributed financial debts to him that Costeja claims to have already paid. In this way, the “right to be forgotten” was officially implemented in the EU.
Google, like the rest of search engines, then had to implement a form that would allow anyone to request the removal of results related to their name. Be careful, only results in Google, since the original information to which it is linked is still there. However, the measure has earned quite a few critics, who accuse it of facilitating the censorship of information.
