Google.com Said to Face EU Right-to-Be-Forgotten Rules

Updated on

Google Inc. will be told to apply the “right to be forgotten” to its websites beyond the European Union under rules being drafted by privacy regulators, according to two people familiar with the plan.

The decision by regulators meeting in Brussels will push the Mountain View, California-based company to apply privacy requests from EU residents to its primary Google.com site in the U.S., said the people, who requested anonymity because the plans aren’t public. Google may also be rebuked for “routinely” notifying media about story links it has removed, they said.
