CNIL, the French privacy watchdog, demands that Google de-list search results as part of the 'right to be forgotten' ruling not only in Europe, but globally. Currently, Europeans can request that Google remove unwanted or irrelevant search results associated with their names. If approved, the requests are only implemented on Google results in Europe. CNIL threatens to establish a formal judgement - most likely in the form of a fine - against Google if it doesn't take steps to remove links "on all extensions of the search engine."
