EU: Google should face $1bn privacy fine, not 'pocket money' amounts

DW100 (2227906) writes | about 9 months ago


DW100 (2227906) writes "Despite Google being fined €900,000 by Spanish authorities and €150,000 in France for its controversial privacy policies in recent months, the EU has admitted this is mere 'pocket money' to the company. Instead, a new legal regime that would have seen Google fined $1bn for breaching data protection laws is needed to make US companies fear and respect the law in Europe."
