Google Earth and Street View Requests

Google have not got where they are by bending over easy, so it comes as no surprise that they have started to play hard with the EU over the Google Earth Street View dispute. The search engine giant has now said that they might stop producing in the old continent if the EU still forces them to remove all their unblurred images within 6 months instead of twelve, which we discussed in a recent post.

According to SoftPedia, Google also added that they might not add any new images in Europe as it is considered too expensive. This announcement certainly seems strange timing, but we would have to agree that the money used could be put to better use, such us improving a number of their other products.

Google have always tried to abide by the European law, but they say that deleting the images in half the amount of time is just not worth the effort and expense in the first place. Are you worried that your privacy is being broken, or would you rather Google keep adding to Street View?
