Growing concerns over the ethical implications of the uses of technologies from facial recognition and drones to artificial intelligence have challenged the notion that tech companies are reshaping the world for the better. With employee protests forcing change last year at some of the most valuable companies in the world, tech workers are turning their new-found power towards the culture of Silicon Valley itself. A week after the walkout, Google acceded to many of the protestors’ stated demands, including the first item on its list: “An end to Forced Arbitration in cases of harassment and discrimination for all current and future employees”.
EU efforts to reform copyright rules hit a roadblock on Monday when a meeting of lawmakers and officials was called off, prompting criticism of Google from publishers after it and other tech giants lobbied against the changes. The European Commission, which launched a debate on the issue two years ago, says an overhaul is necessary to protect Europe's cultural heritage and level the playing field between big online platforms and publishers, broadcasters and artists. European Parliament lawmakers, representatives from EU countries and Commission officials were scheduled to meet on Monday to reconcile their positions on the reform drive.
A French regulator fined Alphabet Inc.’s Google 50 million euros ($56.8 million)—the biggest penalty so far under a new European privacy law—alleging the search-engine giant didn’t go far enough getting valid user consent to gather data for targeted advertising. The fine represents one of the highest profile regulatory actions so far stemming from GDPR, the European Union-wide “General Data Protection Regulation,” which went into effect last year. Google can appeal the decision.
France's data protection watchdog fined Alphabet's Google 50 million euros ($57 million) on Monday for breaching European Union online privacy rules, the biggest such penalty levied against a U.S. tech giant. The French regulator said the world's biggest search engine lacked transparency and clarity in the way it informs users about its handling of personal data and failed to properly obtain their consent for personalised ads. The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the biggest shake-up of data privacy laws in more than two decades, came into force in May. It allows users to better control their personal data and gives regulators the power to impose fines of up to 4 percent of global revenue for violations.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Silicon Valley's notorious nemesis, Margrethe Vestager, plans to end her term as the European Union's antitrust enforcer this year with a bang, laying out a long-term plan to intensify scrutiny of the world's big tech companies.
Big tech companies have taken a public lashing in the past year over their handling of users’ personal information. Inc.’s Google have proved relatively resilient against a growing backlash over possible abuse of their users’ personal privacy. Tech companies’ stocks may have swooned, but advertisers are continuing to cut them checks, and their profits are still growing at double-digit rates that would earn most CEOs a standing ovation.

has become the first US tech giant to be fined under the EU’s new privacy rules, after it was slapped with a €50m penalty for failing to be transparent about how it uses data and not having a legal basis for personalising ads. France’s data protection office, CNIL, found the US search engine guilty of breaking the General Data Protection Regulation on Monday in a decision that will heighten concerns among other tech companies, data brokers, credit reference agencies and advertising groups facing similar complaints under GDPR. The regulator said Google’s users are not able to fully understand how the company uses data because its disclosures are too “generic and vague” and spread across lots of different screens and documents.
