US regulator FCC has launched a probe into Google's Street View data collection snafu, to see whether the company violated federal law.

A UK judge has granted an application from two ISPs – BT and TalkTalk – for a judicial review into the new anti-piracy law, the Digital Economy Act, FT.com reports.

Google has reportedly fired one of its 20,000 employees for leaking a company-wide memo announcing a 10% raise for all staff.

Ask.comwill no longer offer search using its own technology but will answer search queries using third-party feeds.

Japanese social game developer DeNA may partner with Facebook or Zynga as part of its overseas expansion drive, according to its CEO.

Australian regulator ACMA will likely extend a ban on mobile phone jammers, and has proposed new regulation protecting mobile services from interference.
