Dear Google: open letter from 80 academics on ‘right to be forgotten’ (Updated with Google’s response)
Jemima Kiss reports:
It is one year since the European Court of Justice ruled that citizens have the right to request that Google remove links to information about them if these are out of date, misreprentative or irrelevant. But some of the world’s most expert academics claim that Google has not been transparent enough in how it is responding to requests for delisting, and 80 academics from around the world have written to the corporation demanding more transparency about its processes.
Here is the full text of the open letter, also published on Medium.
Read the letter on The Guardian.
Update: Google has said it will consider the ideas presented in a letter from leading academics and legal professionals asking the search giant to increase the transparency around its “right to be forgotten” removal procedures. Read more on Wired.
