Google Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) steps to comply with a recent law in Europe for data protection was discussed by Danny O’Brien in a recent interview on Bloomberg Television.
According to O’Brien who is international director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, this is a very complicated law to implement. He said that though the Court of Justice thought it would be easy, what is being removed is public information. The director pointed out that the original information in the case that ignited the issue is from a newspaper. He said that the newspaper keeps that information online but now Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) isn’t allowed to tell people that this information is out there.
