Internet: European Parliament Vice President Alexander Alvaro calls for Ethics Committee for Internet Companies

In an interview published in Focus, the German news weekly, European Parliament VP Alexander Alvaro apparently demands the establishment of an ethics committee on internet companies, such as Google and Facebook.   Alvaro stated that he had been shocked about a recent suicide of a Canadian teenager and that the draft of the General Data Protection Regulation is not going far enough.  The committee should be comprised of data protection experts, psychologists, and net activist. The committee should decide whether Google should delete pages within 24hours from its index.
