Chicago, Illinois (WiredPRNews.com) — Google Inc., a prominent Internet search and advertising company, has given a senior Republican lawmaker the thumbs-up that they would endorse and support a U.S. privacy law, according to a new report by Reuters.
In May, Texas Rep. Joe Barton, the senior Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, asked Google for information surrounding their acquisition of DoubleClick, the Internet giant’s competitor.
Some experts are unconvinced by Google’s stand citing that a federal privacy law put into act would create the need for a change in state laws. This hesitation is due to the lack of desire to allow the state to get involved.
“Google’s Chief Executive Eric Schmidt and Barton met last November, and two of Barton’s aides went to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California in December to discuss privacy.”
