France Rejects Google’s Right-To-Be-Forgotten Appeal

Google is now facing hefty fines in France if it refuses to comply with a court order after losing an appeal in that ongoing right-to-be-forgotten case.

CNIL said in a statement: "Contrary to what Google has stated, this decision does not show any willingness on the part of the CNIL to apply French law extraterritorially. It simply requests full observance of European legislation by non European players offering their services in Europe." The rejection of the appeal means that Google now must comply with the order and remove the tens of thousands of delistings from its and other non-European domains for named searches.
