The recent European Commission proposal for a EU data protection regulation expressly provides for a “right to be forgotten”, under which it is possible to obtain erasure of personal data online as well as the abstention from further dissemination of such data.

For an interesting discussion how the proposal would apply to ISPs, and of recent Spanish and French cases on the right to be forgotten, see the Portolano Cavallo paper.
