In the European Union, the “right to be forgotten” is a movement that holds Internet giants such as Google and Facebook liable for publishing data that individuals do not want revealed, even if it was the individual who once posted it publicly.
In the United States, our view of free speech takes most of the teeth out of “right to be forgotten” sentiments.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Here’s a link to an ABC news article about the latest EU court moves to rein in Google.
Fascinating stuff. I think I see a “What is the Right to Be Forgotten?” post coming soon to my Tech Tips blogs.
See ya on the Net,

Biography: Paul Gauguin
“Famed French artist Paul Gauguin, born in Paris on June 7, 1848, created his own unique painting style, much like he crafted his own distinctive path through life. Known for bold colors, simplified forms and strong lines, he didn’t have any art formal training. Gauguin instead followed his own vision, abandoning both his family and artistic conventions.” This Biography Channel synopsis includes quick facts, a biography and a full-episode video about Gauguin and Van Gogh’s friendship, rivalry, and art work.

Met Museum: Paul Gauguin (1848–1903)
