Google Fined in France for Violating 'Right to Be Forgotten'

France’s data-protection regulator has slapped a fine on Alphabet Inc.’s Google for not implementing Europe’s “right to be forgotten” globally, rejecting a compromise offered by the search firm and setting up a court battle over the scope of the divisive rule. France’s Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés, or CNIL, said that the search engine had violated a formal order last year ordering it to apply the new right to be forgotten to “all domain names” of the search engine, including, and fined the company €100,000 ($112,000).
