Definitions and criteria will be set. The debate will revolve around values. Ethical values, logic, and philosophy.

You should not have government enforced “right to be forgotten on internet searches”. I would be impossible to inforce. Do to the vast amount of information online Google could spend billions on trying to remove people and still not get all of the links. The program to remove the links works like using the word find on your browser just faster. This is also how the NSA uses computer based spying, by looking over all of communications for keywords. The NSA recently spent nearly $900 million to build one of super computers to run this style of program. (1) Goggle would need several of them just to start making real progress towards the problem.

I have to agree with gomer, it'd be far to difficult, time consuming, and unreliable to try to "forget" someone on the Internet.
