Settlement reached in Mosley versus Google case

Published 18 June 2015

Formula 1 boss Max Mosley, who brought a case against Google for breach of his rights under the DPA, has now agreed a settlement with Google.

Mosley brought the case against Google after Google refused to prevent access, through its search engine, to images and video footage of Mr Mosely engaging in activities during a private sex party.

The terms of the settlement are secret.

For data protection experts and commentators, the settlement of the case is a disappointment as the case could have looked to define the "right to be forgotten" in the context of online search engines.

What action could be taken to manage risks that may arise from this development?

None - for interest.
