The Right to Be Forgotten
This paper outlines the concept of the ‘right to be forgotten’ and critically analyses its implications for New Zealand. The author discusses the origin of the concept in the Court of Justice of the European Union ruling on 13 May 2014, which required Google to remove specific online search results which included personal information. The author concludes that the ‘right to be forgotten’ remains controversial and contested terrain and that it is unlikely this concept will be established separately by statute in New Zealand at this stage.
