Street View Lawsuit Update
An update to the Pennsylvania lawsuit regarding Google Street View. Google has filed a response, portions of which can be viewed on The Smoking Gun. One item of note: a number of media reports suggest that Google's lawyers assert in their brief that given today's technology "complete privacy does not exist." Actually that language is a quote, properly attributed to a legal treatise on the subject of privacy that was published well before commercial satellite imagery and on-line mapping sites.
