Young Woman On The Telephone And ComputerI recently came across this article on PR Daily about an interesting ruling from a European court.

In May, a European court ruled that its citizens had "the right to be forgotten." This victory for privacy advocates basically means that European users are allowed to actively ask providers to remove personal information that's become "outdated" or "irrelevant."

But, the big question for PR pros - what does this mean for European PR pros practicing reputation management for their clients?

What do you think? Will the U.S. follow suit?

  1. We had a client that suffered for years from a false and negative information flying around in the internet (probably launched by a competitor). We helped to get this removed by the online media because we talked directly to most of them. We had credible arguments for the incorrectness of the news. We are convinced that the right to be forgotten is a crucial one otherwise (social) media can be extremely anti-social.
