Vint Cerf, one of the founders of the internet, has condemned a central plank of European proposals to regulate the internet as impractical to enforce and 'terrifying' in prospect.
Mr Cerf, often called the father of the internet, said that the so-called ‘right to be forgotten’ online was “not possible to achieve”. He told The Telegraph, “You can’t go out and remove content from everybody’s computer just because you want the world to forget about something. I don’t think it’s a practical proposition at all.”
