FTC Says EPIC Can't Challenge Google's Privacy Changes

A consumer watchdog’s pleas to the Federal Trade Commission to scrutinize Google’s latest privacy policy changes have met with a curt “No, thanks.” Last year, Google signed a consent decree with the commission, promising not to make changes to the information it made public about its users without their consent. Last week, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, known as EPIC, sued the Federal Trade Commission in Federal District Court in Washington, calling for it to investigate Google’s privacy policy changes.
