Zum heutigen World Day Against Censorship hat die Organisation “Reporter ohne Grenzen” einen aktuellen Bericht über die “Feinde des Internets” veröffentlicht.
Überraschend auf der Liste der “Feinde”: EU-Kommissarin Viviane Reding mit ihrer Forderung nach einem “Recht auf Vergessen”:
“Threat to Net neutrality and online free speech from “right to be forgotten”
More and more individuals are requesting that information involving them be deleted from online archives on the grounds of a supposed “right to be forgotten” or “right to digital oblivion.” European commissioner for justice Viviane Reding fuelled concern on 8 November by referring to a proposed directive that would allow anyone to request the deletion of content of a personal nature “for legitimate reasons.”
A generalized “right to oblivion,” enshrined in a law, would be hard to reconcile with online freedom of expression and information. Such a law would be hard to implement in practice and could place an impossible obligation on content editors and hosting companies – the complete erasure of online content. A thorough debate is need to determine whether individual rights are not already sufficiently guaranteed by existing legal provisions on the right to privacy, media offences, personal data and recourse to the courts.”
