According to Reuters, Reding offered the following examples when pressed about how Google was breaking EU laws.
“In numerous respects. One is that nobody had been consulted, it is not in accordance with the law on transparency and it utilises the data of private persons in order to hand it over to third parties, which is not what the users have agreed to.”
Now it will be curious to see if Google universally backtracks on the new policy, only changes it for EU users, or if they try and fight whatever mandates may be handed down to them in the courts. [Reuters]
