Techdirt Podcast Episode 52: The EU Has Set Privacy & Free Speech On A Collision Course

from the conflicting-values dept

Privacy and free speech aren't fundamentally opposed, but they do have a tendency to come into conflict — and recent developments in Europe surrounding the right to be forgotten have brought this conflict into focus. This week, we're joined by Daphne Keller of Stanford's Center For Internet And Society to discuss the collision between these two important principles.

    The Right to be Forgotten should be called The Right to Make Forget. That at least would be honest in its egregiousness.

    If you are worried about privacy, there is very little real information to gain from this

    I kind of gave up 75% into this. At that point the whole "debate" turned into downward spiral where none of debaters made any sense in terms of valid privacy concerns.
