Daily Talker: Should You Have The “Right To Be Forgotten” Online?

Europe’s highest court says people have a “right to be forgotten”, including what is found online.

The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled that people should have some say over what information comes up when someone Googles them. Experts say that could force Google and other search engines to delete references to old debts, long-ago arrests and other unflattering information. The ruling does not impact sites that actually contain that information, only search engine links.
