WS28: The 'Right to Be Forgotten' and Privatized Adjudication

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over two years have passed since the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled, in the Google Spain case, that the search engine must “de-list” certain search results on request in order to honor the requesters’ data protection rights. The policy consequences of that high profile ruling have been felt around the world. This panel will examine how the so-called “Right to Be Forgotten” ruling has been embraced, criticized, and adapted in other countries. In particular, it will ask how different cultures and legal systems have addressed the role of private Internet intermediaries in resolving difficult conflicts between privacy and free expression -- and what lessons can be learned from their experiences. 

This topic highlights a key issue for Internet governance and inclusive and sustainable growth: the role of Internet platforms in defining and enforcing individual Internet users’ rights online. Governments are increasingly turning to these private companies as de facto regulators of a broad swath of speech. The “Right to Be Forgotten” has been a high profile, large scale test case. From this discussion, we can learn what benefits and what costs Internet users have seen, and how to move toward sustainable models going forward.
