The Role of search engines in Colombia after the Muebles Caqueta vs. Google Inc decision

Contenido principal del artículo

Sarah Osma Peralta


Teniendo en cuenta la importancia de la protección de datos personales, esta investigación se centrará en la identificación de los criterios utilizados por los tribunales colombianos respecto a los derechos de acceso, modificación y supresión de datos personales en el contexto de la información disponible al público a través de los motores de búsqueda. Este marco de referencia expondrá los diferentes casos puestos en conocimiento de la Corte Constitucional de Colombia y de la Corte Suprema de Justicia de Colombia, en tanto que intenta resaltar cuál fue el criterio utilizado por estas para determinar que los motores de búsqueda son simples intermediarios entre los creadores de contenido y los titulares de datos personales. Finalmente, este estudio intenta contribuir no solo a la literatura legal de protección de datos en Colombia, sino también a mejorar las posibilidades de implementar efectivamente los derechos de los usuarios de los motores de búsqueda en línea en Colombia.
