The Protection of Privacy in the Aftermath of the Recent Judgments of the CJEU - eDate Advertising, Digital Rights Ireland and Google Spain

14:00 / 29 September 2014
30 September 2014

Conference on the impact of the CJEU’s judgments on the protection of privacy. The following day, the Institute will host the first meeting of the ILA Committee on the Protection of Privacy in Private International and Procedural Law (this latter event is by invitation only).

Ensuring the effective right to privacy regarding the gathering and processing of personal data has become a key issue both in the internal market and in the international arena.

The extent of people’s right to control their data, the implications of the “right to be forgotten”, the actual impact on national systems of the CJEU’s decisions on jurisdiction on the infringement of personality rights, and recent legislation addressing libel tourism are all shaping a new understanding of data protection and the right to privacy, and also have an impact on other fundamental rights such as freedom of speech.

This Conference will explore these issues to assess the status quo and possible developments in this area of the law which is undergoing significant changes and reforms that are not always easy to reconcile.
