Google Appeals Order For Global 'Right To Be Forgotten'

I'm not sure why Google is resisting this so much, you and I both know that eventually this will become a Global thing with everyone wanting the right to be forgotten. I'm actually surprised more countries haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet.

Google complied, but it only scrubbed results across its European websites such as Google.de in Germany and Google.fr in France, arguing that to do otherwise would set a dangerous precedent on the territorial reach of national laws. In February it also started delisting results across all its domains - including Google.com - when accessed from the country where the request came from. "As a matter of both law and principle, we disagree with this demand," Kent Walker, Google's Senior Vice President and General Counsel, wrote in a blog post.
