Google under privacy fire again

0 comments

A US couple has highlighted privacy concerns over images of their house that appear on Google's Street View. 

They're saying that pictures of their home would have to have been taken from a long driveway clearly marked as a private road.
The couple, Aaron and Christine Boring, say they bought the house because of the privacy it offered.
Google has countered, saying it's easy enough to get the images of their house removed from the site.
However, the couple would have to prove ownership and come up with a good reason why their property shouldn't be shown in order for Google to take it off.
The couple believe that removing the images isn't the point – the truck taking photographs shouldn't have drive on to their private driveway to shoot them in the first place.
