Canadian Supreme Court upholds global injunction against Google

The Supreme Court of Canada issued a landmark decision on 28 June 2017 in which a worldwide injunction was upheld requiring Google to delist certain websites from its search results on a global basis. The decision affirms that Canadian courts will make extraterritorial orders with global effect against search engines and internet intermediaries located outside Canada to prevent access to content deemed unlawful. The introduction of such worldwide injunctions, which has been welcomed by rightsholders, will have implications for internet intermediaries and online businesses. Sangeetha Punniyamoorthy and Thomas Kurys, of DLA Piper (Canada) LLP, assess the details of the Google Inc. v. Equustek Solutions Inc. case and provide insight into the wider impact of the ruling.
