+ - Will Facebook's Battle With EU Spur Innovation?->

Submitted by Cavaradossi
Cavaradossi (2804189) writes "Facebook has legitimate gripes (as well as having a lot at stake) with the EU Commission's right-to-be-forgotten-rule. In the proposed changes--article 17-- to the landmark 1995 Data Protection Directive, "data controllers" --Facebook, Google, Tumblr, or any service that collects data--will be held responsible for deleting all data, even copies found on third-party sites ,when the "data subject"-- you or me--requests it. It's not the way the Internet was supposed to work as Facebook has pointed out. Entirely unreasonable request from EU technocrats. But could the EU Commission's demands end up spurring innovation in privacy?"
