Google defies French regulator’s “right to be forgotten” ruling

French privacy regulator, CNIL, has recently ordered Google to extend individual’s right to have posts removed from its websites worldwide, including Google.com (and not just Google’s European websites such as Google.de or Google.fr).  In response, Google said it disagrees with CNIL’s authority to make such an order on the basis that “while the right to be forgotten may now be the law in Europe, it is not the law globally.”  CNIL is currently considering Google’s appeal.
