Privacy group complain about Google Street View
Lobby group Privacy International have made the complaint, backed up by more than 200 reports from individuals who are identifiable on the photographed network of streets from around the country.
Among those who have been cited in the complaint are a woman who had moved house to escape her violent partner – she can clearly be identified on Street View outside her new home.
Google have reiterated that anyone who is included in a picture can opt out and they'll be deleted from the pics, but what if any potential damage is done before they get the chance to complain? Where do BW readers stand on Street View – harmless bit of fun or another erosion of our personal privacy?
