Google fights order by French privacy watchdog; Shell to cut 6,500 jobs.

Google will disobey a formal notice from France’s privacy watchdog, which has demanded the company extends Europe’s “right to be forgotten” online around the world, in a move that risks further legal action.LUXEMBOURG — Google is pushing back against France’s data privacy authority after the watchdog ordered the search engine giant to extend the so-called right to be forgotten to its websites globally. In a controversial ruling last year, the European Court of Justice found citizens have the right to ask internet search engines to remove embarrassing or sensitive results that include their name.

The French data protection authority, the CNIL, in June ordered Google to de-list on request search results appearing under a person’s name from all its Web sites. She currently also heads the group of EU data protection commissioners who urged Google to remove links, when needed, from .com sites and not just from European sites. More ominously, Linn Energy, a small exploration and production company, on Thursday suspended its quarterly distribution to investors to conserve precious cash, which has largely evaporated. In a statement of objections they accused the Internet giant of abusing its dominance of the search-engine market and on the same day started a new investigation into Google’s Android mobile-phone software. EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said this month she sees no need to wait to finish her current case before filing new antitrust complaints against the company.

The second dip has dashed hopes raised in May that prices would hold steady at about $60 a barrel or inch toward $65, a level that many U.S. shale oil producers have said would allow them to add drilling rigs. ● U.S. home rental prices climbed much faster than incomes in June. Meanwhile, mortgage giant Freddie Mac said the average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage declined to 3.98 percent this week from 4.04 percent a week earlier. The new $105 million cap was part of a six-year surface transportation policy bill on which the Senate voted Thursday. ● Procter & Gamble’s sales fell for the sixth straight quarter as the world’s biggest consumer-goods company was weighed down by softer sales volume and unfavorable exchange rates.

That was below the $18.06 billion Wall Street expected. ● Mexico said it would quadruple daily dollar sales to $200 million in an effort to prop up the peso, helping to reverse a market slide that has left the currency at a record low.
