Google holding sessions on "right to be forgotten"

The controversial concept of the "right to be forgotten" which would eliminate some people's online information (various kinds for various reasons if your application is approved) remains controversial. Google does not want to do it. Many people, over 90,000 since July, have petitioned to have some bit of information about them removed from online search indexes. Perhaps they were accused of a crime they were innocent of committing. Perhaps it is something embarrassing but not criminal. Google is going to hold a series of meeting throughout Europe with a panel of experts espousing pro- and anti- sentiments about the concept. It remains unclear whether these sessions are to convince the public or Google as to which direction to go with the concept.  Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28344705
