"The European Commission recently proposed the implementation of the 'Right to be Forgotten' in the cyberspace, that is, the 'right to ask service providers to delete the personal information that has been collected by data brokers under a users' consent.' Similar in principle to the 'right of oblivion' (in the French law), the Right to be Forgotten will empower people to take control of their digital image and reputation in the cyberspace."
