The Right to be Forgotten: Europe Leads on Internet Privacy

The Right to be Forgotten: Europe Leads on Internet Privacy
I. Read the case study in Chapter 8 of the textbook, titled “The Right to be Forgotten:
Europe Leads on Internet Privacy.”
II. In < 700 words, write a response essay that addresses the following questions/issues:
● What is the Right to be Forgotten?
● Why did Google initially resist the decision made by the European Union?
● How do you feel personally about the Right to be Forgotten? What is good about
it? What is bad about it? Why do you think the implementation is so difficult?
You may consult outside sources to help inform your understanding of the general
themes/ideas, but you do not need to. No citations are needed, either. Most of your time
and energy should be devoted to the third section. I am looking to see case write-ups
that demonstrate effort and originality — not some particular “right” answer to the questions.
Remember the word limit — it is included here for a reason.
