Submission + - EU Says Google Street View Violates Privacy (kitv.com)

upto0013 writes: The EU says that Google's Street View images violate privacy laws.

The case also asks that Google retain the images for only six months — instead of a year — and warn locals before the Google mobile comes to town.

Google said it would appeal the case, claiming it attacked freedom of speech on the Internet.

This case comes despite the fact that Google blurs faces and license plates and that it only photographs very public places.
