Introduction to Intellectual Property Issues: The Right To Be Forgotten

The workshop will examine Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation, consider examples of case law, and review various positions in the debate over the parameters of privacy, the concern for free speech, and the accuracy of the historical record. 

Through workshop discussions, and the development of a brief intervention, participants will consider the positions of industry, government, civil society, and information organizations and identify the issues that an information professional take into account the formulation of a position on the limits of access and privacy. 

Outcomes: participants will gain understanding of the way government, industry, and civil society negotiate the line between privacy and censorship.
