France Seeks to Impose "Right to be Forgotten" Globally – New Order

The French Commission nationale de l'informatique et des libert├ęs has issued an order (archived) to Google demanding that the search provider enforce European "right to be forgotten" protections globally in its search results. Such extraterritorial aggression on the part of regulatory bodies in recent times has been more characteristic of United States government action that that of European governments. There will likely be further confrontation as the French CNIL works to make Google results even more useless than Google itself already has. France has escalated their previous demands to an order. Google intends not to comply with this order.
