Almost 250,000 Germans have told Google to blur pictures of their homes on the Street View service.

The German government insisted that people get the chance to make the request as a condition of letting Google operate Street View.

250,000? seems like a fairly small number.

Another look indicates that only 2.89% of homes opt out... [theregister.co.uk...]

Then again, one has to ask how many non-internet connected homes were consulted.

"In some cases for example the addresses could not be clearly assigned because the specifications were not legible or the descriptions of buildings were not precise enough," wrote Andreas Tuerk, Google Germany's Street View product manager in a blog post.


They never said how many were not removed that requested to be removed.

It's 250,000 households, i.e. anywhere between 700,000 and 1,000,000 people...
