Complaint Against Google Street View

google_street-view1A select bunch of Japanese journalists, professors and lawyers recently demanded Google to shut down its Street View service in Japan, touting claims that it violates people’s privacy.

Street View provides close-up photographic views of areas on Google Earth satellite images, and some of those images picture people and their homes along with roads, other buildings and other landscape features.

Due to Japan’s strict privacy protections, citizens have the right to have any images that they feel invade their privacy removed, so we’re guessing that this petition might find favour with Japanese authorities.
