Britain's Information Privacy Commissioner Rejects Complaints About Google Street View; Says Its Use Doesn't Invade Privacy

The agency responsible for protecting British citizen privacy says Google Street view does not violate it, based on other current practices including Twitter, blogging, and use of services such as MySpace and Facebook. The Information Privacy Commissioner's Office says that "it is important to highlight that putting images of people on Google Street View is very unlikely to formally breach the Data Protection Act." It noted that Google and the agency had met in 2008 to discuss how Google Street View would be implemented in the UK.
