Another Boring Lawsuit for Google
Those new street view maps have caught both people and property in their "net" that oppose the invasion of privacy.
A call to Google can usually get the individual photoshopped out or the property deleted. Some have chosen to sue the deep- pocketed pants off Google. The Aaron Boring family has put the Pittsburg's Oakridge Lane on the map by refusing to accept Google's apology. They may have a case, since Google's camera people seem to have inadvertantly crossed the line between public street and wide driveway. But the Boring's suit has made their home one of the most widely publicized properties on the web.
Meanwhile, down under, the Aussies are defending their turf from Google by turning the tables and digging up dirt in Google's yard.
