Professor Chander Comments on Internet Privacy Ruling for TechNewsWorld

Professor Anupam Chander commented for TechNewsWorld on a French court's ruling that Google must automatically block from online searches compromising images of Max Mosley, a former president of the International Automobile Federation.

Chander said that privacy and free speech laws vary in different regions, which  "makes day-to-day operations quite complicated and difficult" for companies like Google that operate in multiple countries. "Anyone who has the means, as Mosley does, will resort to court orders," he added, in order to have unflattering content about themselves removed from Google results.

Professor Anupam Chander is a leading scholar in the law of globalization and digitization, and has written widely on international law and cyber law.  He is also Director of the California International Law Center at King Hall.
