I am particularly concerned about how this bill will affect scientific discourse. Suppose for example that Andrew Wakefield wants criticism of his fraduelent work on vaccines to be expunged from the links that come up in Google searches? What should Google do there? What about retracted papers in general? What is the person behind the paper does not think that retracted papers should appear in searches for that person's name? This seems to be one of those cases of a very very slippery slope being created to solve a real problem but to solve it in the wrong way.
UPDATE - may not be as big a risk to Science as I thought ...
