Right To Be Forgotten – Privacy
This is all well and good, but in order for this to work everyone has to be on board. Otherwise, it’s pretty much useless. But what about the other gazillion websites that mention these names?
The European Commission wants to force companies holding data to
allow users to remove their info from websites, calling it the Right To Be Forgotten.
In a sign of where Europe is going and how complex applying the law could become, Spanish data protection authorities ordered Google in January to remove links to more than 80 news articles mentioning people by name, saying it violated privacy.
