Privacy, the Internet, and the Right to be Forgotten

Join us for a discussion:
Wednesday, April 20, 2016 (2-4pm)
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?
