Google (NASDAQ:GOOG): Current price $790.37
Google struggled against Spain’s data protection authority in Europe’s highest court on Tuesday in a case that will be monitored worldwide. This case asks one of the most profound questions of the Internet age – When is information really private? The dispute is fraught with complex arguments in regards to the right to protect data, freedom of information, what it means to be a publisher and who or what polices the web. Google contends it should not be forced to delete lawful content which it did not create from its search index, but authorities in Spain say that the company should delete information from its results in the case of an individual’s privacy being breached.
