  • In May 2014, the European Court of Justice ruled that internet users have the quoteright

  • to be forgotten”. They ordered Google to remove undesirable links to personal data

  • that isinaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant or excessivewhen asked to do so. However,

  • opponents of the ruling say that it is a form of censorship, and could have a chilling effect

  • on internet speech. So, should you have the right to be forgotten on the internet?

  • This idea is actually not a new legal concept. A decade ago, the 1995 European Union Data

  • Protection Directive set the stage for updated privacy rules in the digital era. With the

  • ubiquitous nature of internet record keeping, erasing information is not as easy as it used

  • to be. Many believe legal protections need to catch up with the 21st century.

  • The problem with the right to be forgotten is that it inherently contradicts the right

  • to free speech. A person cannot simply have information removed because he or she disagrees

  • with or dislikes its content. But when information fits the profile ofinaccurate, inadequate,

  • irrelevant or excessive”, courts will have to weigh how damaging the information is to

  • the person versus how relevant that information is to the public. Often the decisions are

  • made on a case-by-case basis. Examples would be arrest records, revealing photos, regrettable

  • tweets, and even false accusations or rumors.

  • However, critics of the ruling point to some controversial cases as examples of unnecessary

  • censorship. One news agency reports that a story about a Scottish man who strangled his

  • wife in 2002 was removed by Google as a result of the new ruling. Other stories, which may

  • be important to the public, pertaining to things likes tax evasion or theft, were also

  • deleted. Many feel that this kind of removal of information violates freedom of speech,

  • and public access to data. About a quarter million requests for Google to remove information

  • have already been made.

  • Currently, the ECJ ruling affects only search results on the European version of Google,

  • and the removed results still appear when searched on No actual content

  • is erased, and the nature of the internet suggests it will exist indefinitely. So, unfortunately,

  • according to current laws, whether or not you have theright to be forgotten”,

  • is mostly irrelevant.

  • Google, despite struggles is one of the most powerful companies in the world. To learn
