Street View and Privacy

The Google LatLong Blog today published a post explaining how Google will honour the laws of any country they decide to include in Streetview on Google Maps. This may be an indication that Streetview is about to appear in cities outside of the United States.

Streetview cars / vans have reportedly been spotted in Canada so it may be about to appear there. Or it could just be a response to the concerns raised by Canada's Privacy Commissioner over images of individuals being used without their permission.
