Reconceptualizing the Right to Be Forgotten to Enable Transatlantic Data Flow

with Sanna Kulevska and Michael L. Rustad

The recently agreed final version of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the European Court of Justice’s October 2015 decision to strike down the Safe Harbor agreement that enabled cross-border data flow from Europe to the United States for the past fifteen years create a legal dilemma. Sanna Kulevska and Michael Rustad propose that the U.S. adopt a scaled-down right to be forgotten that will balance the fundamental right of privacy in Europe with the First Amendment in the United States. The authors will lead a discussion on the difficulties of developing a right to be forgotten to achieve this balance.
