UK commissioner rules against the tech giant, but the company won't be fined or punished.

BBC: UK Information Commissioner Christopher Graham has ruled that Google's Street View vehicles committed a "significant breach" of UK laws. However, the commissioner won't impose a fine or punishment on the company. Instead, the Information Commissioner's Office will audit the company's security and privacy practices.

Peter Fleischer, Google's Global Privacy Counsel, said the company was "profoundly sorry for mistakenly collecting payload data in the UK."
