The Court of Justice of the European Union ruled the right to be forgotten can only be applied to individuals within the EU, The New York Times reports. The court determined the RTBF “is not an absolute right.” In a separate ruling, the CJEU said companies must consider free expression of information before deleting links with certain types of personal data. “The balance between right to privacy and protection of personal data, on the one hand, and the freedom of information of internet users, on the other, is likely to vary significantly around the world,” the court said in its decision. The Times also reported on a RTBF case involving an Italian journalist. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
