Google wins 'right to be forgotten' case

Google is not required to apply an EU 'right to be forgotten' to its search engine domains outside Europe, the EU's top court ruled on Tuesday in a landmark decision.

The judgment by the European Court of Justice handed victory to Google in the case, seen as crucial in determining whether EU online regulation should apply beyond Europe's borders or not.

The U.S internet giant had argued that the removal of search results required under EU law should not extend to its google.com domain or its other non-EU sites.
