Google South Korea Office Raided by Police

The police in South Korea have raided offices of Google this morning. The raid was related to the Google Streetview WiFi problems that have been highlighted over the last few months although in other countries, those problems are generally resolved.

Earlier this morning, Google’s Seoul HQ was subjected to a raid and search operation by the cyber crime unit of the Korean National Police Agency, due to suspicions that it may have collected and stored data from WiFi networks without authorization. So it’s the same old complaint the rest of the world’s been dealing with, only the zeal of the methodology seems to have been turned up to 11.

It isn’t clear if anything else will be uncovered by the raid. We suspect all will turn to normal soon although we expect it will delay the program quite a bit in S. Korea for Google.
