Submission + - Google Street View sparks privacy concerns (lawbean.com)

Spamicles writes: "Google launched its new Street View feature this week for Google Maps. This new map feature offers panoramic views at street level. Street View was launched in Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, and Google touts the benefits of easily finding places and understanding neighborhoods. Blogs and Internet sites such as Wired and Streetviewr are full of images from Street View revealing people in potentially embarrassing positions: Stanford University coeds sunbathing in bikinis, men leaving strip clubs, a woman bent over exposing her thong, a man picking his nose. These candid photos highlight a growing concern over privacy issues surrounding this new service."
