Swiss privacy commissioner demands Google to close Streetvie
It was a minor news item last week, the fact that Switzerland could now be visited using Google Streetview. A Swiss privacy official however thought it was a big case. Last Friday he demanded Google Streetview to immediately close its doors in Switzerland.
The Swiss internet users whower haven't complained. According to Google their Google Maps service had an 80 percent increase in volume since the launch of Streetview last week, while only a few requests to erase pictures were issued.
Another Swiss member of parliament was faced with the power of Streetview right away. Member of Parliament Ruedi Nose was found and recognized on Streetview, accompanied by a lady, which turned out to be his assistant. Nose says he doesn't mind: "There is probably no problem for my wife, as you could also recognize my companion in the picture," he stated in a Swiss newspaper. That same newspaper also quoted him demanding the "instant shutdown of Street View" until Google can guarantee that it properly hides the identities of people in 100 percent of cases.
