Featuring Professor Ellen Goodman (Rutgers University) and Marcel Leonardi (Senior Public Policy Counsel, Google)
The European Court of Human Rights, in a case involving a claimant in Spain seeking to forbid the listing of certain information, created a process for people to remove links to unwanted content The case created a zone of substantial debate about the scope of the right, the entities subject to the right, the territorial implications and the complexities of compliance. Debates about these issues are taking place in Europe and across the world. Professor Goodman is engaged in a research effort concerning Google and the implementation of this right. Professor Leonardi considers these questions both in his role as a law professor and as a member of Google’s public policy team.
This discussion is part of the Americas Round of Oxford University’s Price International Media Moot Court Competition.
