Consumer Watchdog Video against Google – Eric Schmidt Privacy Concerns
- 3 Comment
Consumer Watchdog, a nonprofit advocacy group has posted a cartoon on YouTube that depicts Eric Schmidt exploiting children and claim that video played 36 times per day on the jumbotron in Times Square.
Main aim of video to draw attention to privacy concerns of Google’s advertising practices, shows Eric in an ice cream truck, luring children in only to spy on them and collect data about them.
Video focus the issue of tracking cookies, which allow advertisers like Google to target ads based on browsing behavior. But Consumer Watchdog has plenty of other complaints with Google — President Jamie Court called Google’s supposedly inadvertant wifi snooping “the most massive wiretapping scandal in American history.” Jamie does not, apparently, have a very long memory.
