EPIC Files Emergency Appeal Against GoogleBy: Mike Fossum - February 28, 2012
EPIC is concerned that the changes at Google will compromise users’ privacy, and that Google failed to comply with a consent order issued by the FTC. EPIC asserts that Google “chose not to answer many of the questions,” and failed to fully explain the impact on user privacy that will occur on March 1st. Still, the FTC is in charge here, which apparently really angers EPIC, with the group adding, “if the government is unaware that Google plans to make a substantial change in its business practices on March 1, 2012, it should turn on a computer connected to the Internet.”
