FCC Proposes $25,000 Fine for Google in 'Wi-Spy' Case

The Federal Communications Commission proposed a $25,000 fine on Google Inc., accusing the search giant of deliberately obstructing an investigation into whether the company violated federal rules when its street-mapping service collected and stored data from unencrypted Wi-Fi networks in 2010. The agency proposed the fine as it faced a deadline for taking action on the "Wi-Spy" case.
