The FCC has announced it is investigating Google's Street View program for privacy breaches. Like agencies in several other countries, the agency launched an investigation because of private complaints. The Wall Street Journal reported that the FCC began its look into Google's program when the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a complaint alleging that the company had violated laws on electronic eavesdropping. An earlier FTC investigation ended last month without agency action.
