Friday, May 12, 2017

Justice Dias Toffoli of the Brazilian Federal Supreme Court (STF) called a public hearing to discuss the issue of the "right to oblivion" in the civil area. The subject is addressed in Extraordinary Appeal (RE) 1010606, in which relatives of the victim of a rumorous crime practiced in the 1950s question their use on television and ask for compensation.

The public hearing shall aim to hear authorities and experts about the possibility of the victim or his / her family members invoking the application of the right to oblivion in the civil sphere and the definition of the legal content of that right. The theme involves harmonizing the constitutional principles of freedom of expression and the right to information, the dignity of the human person and the inviolability of honor and intimacy.
