The Right to be Forgotten

The Right to be Forgotten cover


Longlisted for the 2022 Inner Temple Main Book Prize

The Right to be Forgotten is one of the most publicised areas of the GDPR and has received massive worldwide publicity following judicial and legal developments in Europe. Individual data regulators have increased powers and importance in dealing with RtbF rights for individuals, and it is more important than ever for them to be up to date. The new, second edition, is fully updated to include:

- the increasing importance of the role of RtbF in relation to media content (newspapers and television media in particular).
- the evolving jurisprudence in terms of RtbF generally, especially in light of increased understanding of the GDPR RtbF and the landmark Google Spain RtbF case.
- the recent Google France case.
- the potential for group actions, class actions, and litigation funding, in relation to RtbF issues
