Abstract:  In an era of online sharing and ubiquitous computing, an Internet that never forgets poses a complex challenge to privacy, reputation, and freedom. Is the EU's New "Right to be Forgotten" a Solution?
What is the nature of this legal right? Does it strike a proper balance between privacy and free expression? Has it worked in the EU? Would it work here?
