Swiss Court Rules Google Need Not Obscure Faces and Car Plates Before Publishing Street View [reuters.com]
Technology giant Google can continue to provide its Street View service in Switzerland after a Swiss Court ruled the company was not bound to blur all faces and number plates before publishing images on the Internet.

That softened a March 2011 ruling by a lower court which had upheld claims from the Swiss privacy watchdog that Google should obscure all faces and number plates from its photo mapping service, a judgement Google (GOOG.O) appealed.

"The Federal Supreme Court holds that it is not justified to require, in addition to automatic anonymisation prior to publication on the Internet, that all faces and number plates be rendered completely unrecognisable," the court said in a statement.

"It therefore upholds the appeal in part."
