Privacy, the Internet, and the Right to be Forgotten

Room 3107, Mona Campbell Building 1459 LeMarchant St, Halifax Dalhousie University

In an era of online sharing and ubiquitous computing, an Internet that never forgets poses a complex challenge to privacy, reputation, and freedom. Is the EU’s New “Right to be Forgotten” a Solution? What is the nature of this legal right? Does it strike a proper balance between privacy and free expression? Has it worked in the EU? Would it work here?
