I've been idly musing about the fact that the rules now appear to include photos of yourself within the category of "personal information" that EU citizens can request to have purged.

First, this would appear to be in direct conflict with British copyright law which states that it is the PHOTOGRAPHER, not the subject, who holds the rights to any image.

Second, think of all the people in the background in any holiday pictures, trip reports, photopass shots, etc. If one EU citizen who happens to be clearly visible in the background decides that they want all photos of themselves purged from the internet, could this new new law be stupid enough to even try to enforce that? <head explodes>
