Google has appealed against a €100,000 fine demanded by France’s National Commission on Informatics and Liberty (CNIL).

The fine was imposed because the regulator said that Google had only partially complied with request to have information removed from search engines.  The links were removed from European Google sites but not from Google.com.  CNIL believes the firm should delist the information across all its domains.

Google is arguing that CNIL does not have the authority to impose measures outside of its jurisdiction and that it ‘fears for free speech’ should their appeal be rejected.
