By Leila Abboud and Julia Fioretti PARIS/BRUSSELS (Reuters) – European regulators have not yet decided whether to try to force search engines such as Google and Microsofts Bing to scrub results globally when people invoke their right to be forgotten in the region. Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin – who heads Frances privacy watchdog and the WP29 group of EU national data protection authorities – said in an interview on Friday that no consensus had yet been reached on what she called a complicated issue. The European Unions top court ruled in May that search engines must take down certain results shown under a search of a persons name if the information was inadequate, irrelevant or no longer relevant. Although the right to be forgotten existed as a concept in European law, the ruling marked the first time companies like Google have been asked to field such requests from the public.
