Google is taking its legal fight over whether “right to be forgotten” should apply to search engines all the way to Europe’s top court.

The technology giant is for a showdown at the European Union Court of Justice in Luxembourg on Tuesday with France’s privacy regulator over an order to remove search results worldwide upon request.

A group of media and press freedom groups are also joining Google’s case, saying that forcing internet companies to remove website links to comply with a European Union ruling threatens access to information.

The two sides will be seeking clarification on a 2015 decision by the French regulator requiring Google to remove results for all its search engines on request, and not just on European country sites.
