Getting to the "bottom" of Google Street View and Privacy

A lady in the UK was so concerned that a random image of the naked bottom of her (anonymous) 3-year old son playing in his grandmother's yard was visible on Google Street View - that was subsequently blurred - violated his privacy . . . that she granted an interview to a local newspaper that gave her name, the city and the street where the boy lived, and included a picture of her and her son (in addition to the Google Street View shot). Good for her!

Thanks to CNET for point this out.
