GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) was put into force in May 2018. It also applies to media and journalists. Freedom of expression – including a free and independent press – are important in a healthy democracy. Media organisations must therefore be able to process personal data when producing journalistic content, where there is a public interest in doing so. Data protection laws recognise this by including specific rules that help balance the right to privacy with the right to freedom of expression. One of the most important new rights GDPR offers to individuals is a right to be forgotten (right to erasure). How does this right apply to media? In this lecture we will also discuss the jurisprudence od European courts regarding this right.
