Right to be Forgotten?

The Right to be Forgotten, this “act” that has been put in place for search engines in Europe, is a way that a person can have relevant links to themselves removed that could be potentially defaming.  Plaintiffs in the case could be ex-murderers, felons or anyone that has something on the internet posted about themselves that they deem unjust.


This is clearly censoring of the internet that essentially takes away free speech.  It would be more permissible for items that are not true to be taken down; however, these are true writings that people may believe will negatively affect them.


Bottom line:  Do not run from the facts.
