Dr. Agnès Callamard publishes a piece in the National Law Review on recent court decisions on the right to be de-indexed

The initiative’s director, Dr. Agnès Callamard, published a paper in the National Law Review, titled “Comity for Internet? Recent Court Decisions on the Right to be De-indexed.”

The paper analyzes new decisions on the right to be de-indexed by the French administrative body responsible for the protection of private data, La Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL), and by a Canadian appeals court in Equustek Solutions Inc. v. Google Inc.

These decision clarify the reach of de-listing orders and introduce the notion of legal reciprocity or “comity” to enforcing global de-listing requests.
