Google has created a new form for the public through which they can give their feedback on the implementation of the Right to be Forgotten law in Europe.
After the ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union, allowing people to request the removal of their personal information from search results, Google has been receiving removal requests everyday on content including serious criminal records, embarrassing photos, negative press stories etc.
As such, it has become crucial to strike a balance between individual’s right to be forgotten and people’s right to know. To overcome this challenge Google is convening a council of experts to discuss individual cases and strike this balance right. In this process, Google is also accepting suggestions and advice from the public on the principles Google should follow while making decisions on individual cases.
The public can fill up a form and submit their feedback on the law on the Right to be Forgotten. The committee consists of Prof. Luciano Floridi, Sylvie Kauffmann, Lidia Kolucka-Zuk, Fra
nk La Rue, José-Luis Piñar, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, Peggy Valcke, Jimmy Wales, Eric Schmidt and David C. Drummond.
The advisory council will gather inputs form Europeans, hold live consultations in Europe and publish its findings. It will also invite contributions from different realms like government, media, academia etc. to discuss the challenges.
