French data privacy agency Cnil has fined Google EUR 100,000 for failing to remove "right-to-be-forgotten" requests from global search results. Cnil said it received a number of complaints from people who wanted the search engine to delete search results that pointed to personal information about them. While Google removed links from its French ".fr" domain, it didn't take them off the ".com" domain visible to European web users.
