Meg Leta Jones: Ctrl + Z - The Right To Be Forgotten

Technology and Communications expert Meg Leta Jones discusses her new book, Ctrl + Z The Right to Be Forgotten which looks at the international debate around whether or not we should be allowed to remove embarrassing, harmful or no longer relevant things from the internet. Meg sits down with Craig to discuss whether children should be allowed to erase youthful indiscretions, if we should all just adjust to a world where everything is recorded, and the legalities and practicalities of removing information from the internet? The right to be forgotten is an international debate that raises important questions of free speech, privacy, reputation, and dignity.

 

Meg Leta Jones is an assistant professor in Georgetown University's Communication, Culture & Technology program where she researches and teaches in the area of technology law and policy.
