The U.S. Should Adopt the "Right to Be Forgotten" Online
A DebateStreaming Video - 2015
In 2014, the European Union's Court of Justice ruled that individuals have a right to be forgotten online, "the right-under certain conditions-to ask search engines to remove links with personal information about them." This right is not absolute, however, but meant to be balanced against other fundamental rights, like freedom of expression. In the six months following the court's decision, Google received more than 180,000 removal requests. Of those reviewed and processed, 41% were granted. Largely seen as a victory by Europeans, the reaction among Americans was overwhelmingly negative. Was the Court of Justice's ruling a win for privacy and human dignity, or a blow to free speech and public information? Should the United States adopt the "right to be forgotten" online?
