37 State Attorney Generals are investigating Google in connection with its Street View, suggesting the possibility that, without permission, Google collected private and personal information on American consumers.  In a letter announcing the investigation, the Connecticut Attorney General asks some probing question about how Google collected its information and provides insight into the direction of the investigation.  Among several issues, the investigation is looking into whether Google collected personal consumer information from encrypted WiFi networks.  In an interesting analysis, Scott Cleland’s blog suggests that the investigation puts Google in a “real pickle” to explain itself.
