Sputnik News: US Consumer Groups Urge FTC to Investigate Google’s Tracking Practices
I commented on a story for Sputnik News regarding the TCAD’s letter urging the FTC to take a more regulatory role over Google’s “deceptive and misleading practices” regarding privacy. Unfortunately, the FTC is a toothless organization in the pockets of big corporations.
Unfortunately, Garaffa noted, the FTC is primarily an investigative body and has very limited enforcement capability. "While an investigation could reveal more about Google's practices, it's going to be up to Google employees who are aware of what's happening on the inside, as well as the general public, to defend our right to privacy," he told Sputnik.
