Google Allegedly Infringing Users' Privacy After Massive Fine for Previous Infraction
Less than three months after Google paid over the largest-ever US fine for violating users' privacy, the Internet search giant is alleged to be infringing its users privacy once again -- this time in Europe.
Prior to this summer, when it ran into trouble in conjunction with its apparent undisclosed spying on users of its services who also use Apple products, Google had already been cited in the US for violating its users' privacy in relation to Google+.
Google is currently being investigated in both the EU and the US for potential anti-competitive behavior, separate to that at issue with regard to the privacy concerns raised.
Politico also reported Monday that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has opened yet another investigation into Google's "handling of key patents it picked up when the search giant acquired Motorola Mobility earlier this year."
