The Civil Division of Spain’s Supreme Court has issued a ruling that publishing agencies must insert source code in their web operations to prevent search engines from indexing published personal information.  In Ediciones El Pai´s, S.L. v. “A and B,” the Court weighed the public interest of freedom of information against an individual’s right to privacy, honor, and data protection.  The Court ruled that online publications must employ source code (such as robots.txt, noarchive, or noindex) to inhibit search engines from finding personal information through use of a person’s name as a keyword.  But it said publishers may continue to index published personal information in their own internal digital archives.  This decision constitutes a major expansion of the already highly controversial right to be forgotten, imposing significant burdens on sites that actually publish information rather than just on the search engines that help direct people to that information.
