French data protection regulator fines Google over right to be forgotten

The French data protection regulator (Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés – CNIL) has fined Google €100,000 for failing to extend its delisting of search results across all of Google’s domain name extensions. Google’s proposed solution of filtering results based on the geographic origin of the person performing the search ‘does not give people effective, full protection of their right to be delisted’, the CNIL stated.
