+ - Germany Demands Google Forfeit Citizen's Wifi Data->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "Germany has ordered Google to give up hard disk drives used to store German 600GB of data collected during their Street View collection in Germany. This follows Google admitting last week (after prodding from the Germans) that it had collected the data from unsecured wireless area networks from around the entire world as its roving cars collected the photo archive for Street View. Google says they've offered to just destroy the data but the German government wants to know what's they've collected and do not think that destroying the drives suffices for compliance with the laws. Officials went so far as to say of the situation, "It is not acceptable that a company operating in the E.U. does not respect E.U. rules." Germany has certainly been keeping their eye on the search monster."
