Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the World Wide Web in 1989 while working at the Swiss particle laboratory CERN, said the world has a "problem with data disappearing" and the right to be forgotten ruling would make it worse.
"The idea that information which is true should be expunged for the public record is frightening," Berners-Lee told journalists at the IP Expo Europe in London.
The inventor said that the rule is "draconian" when people request information that is true about them to be taken down, adding that soon, many news articles which are factual could be wiped off the web.

Google has received 140,000 individual requests for data to be removed which accounts for about half a million links.
Berners-Lee added that an open internet had allowed him to create the World Wide Web and "net neutrality" must be maintained to help future inventions. Net neutrality means Internet service providers should treat traffic equally without blocking or discriminating against competitors' websites or services.
"We have to keep fighting for net neutrality and keeping the internet as a platform without an attitude, a platform without a center," he said.
