European Regulators May Reopen Street View Inquiries

European privacy regulators said Wednesday that they were considering reopening their inquiries into Google's collection of personal e-mails and Web searches for its Street View service. The move came after revelations that the activity had not been a lone programmer's error, and that others at the company had been told about it.
Many regulators in Europe feel misled by Google in the matter, said Jacob Kohnstamm, a Dutch regulator who is the chairman of the top European privacy panel. He called for a stronger global response.
