Who’s on first?

Governance requires determining what the applicable requirements are.  So what rules apply to the Internet, and who decides disputes?

Google Is Pressed On Right to ‘Forget,'” The Wall Street Journal, June 13, 2015 B10.  France orders Google to delete links outside of France, taking the position that the right to be forgotten means France has the right to control Google’s activity world-wide.

What rules apply and who decides?  Did Google agree to apply European law to Google’s international operations by registering domains in Europe?  How do you govern if the governee doesn’t agree?  To whom does one appeal?
