Facebook Lobbies EU re Privacy Laws

http://j.mp/PI4xUU  (Insider Monkey)

    Of most concern for Facebook Inc (FB), a source said, was a rule that
    gave users the right to request to have their information erased from
    Web sites like Facebook - also called the "right to be forgotten"
    provision. Facebook claims that the rule would take away users' right
    to be remembers as well as dampen freedom to expression. Simon Milner
    of Facebook U.K. and Ireland, said, "The right to delete your online
    data is an important one, the right to erasure is a key principle.
    However, the right to be forgotten raises many concerns with regard to
    the right of others to remember and to freedom of expression.

The EU Right to Be Forgotten concept is a disaster in the making.
