Google Unfazed by AGs' Furrowed Brows

From Erika Morphy's article on E-Commerce Times and TechNewsWorld:

From Google's perspective, it has no reason to make changes based on the AGs' letter, according to Ryan Radia, an analyst with the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

It does not raise any substantive concerns, he told the E-Commerce Times. "This letter is pure saber rattling by the attorneys general. The notion that Google would change its forthcoming privacy policy in response to this letter is far-fetched."

The AGs didn't raise issues that are of legitimate concern to privacy advocates, such as reports that Google circumvents a mechanism in the Safari browser to disable tracking, Radia pointed out, "which makes it sound as though they aren't well informed about the true concerns."
