well, Google Street View is getting a lot of flak right now in Germany. Google announced to start the service with 20 German cities covered giving people four weeks time to have their properties removed.
"You have decided to blur your building and/or property prior to the launch of Street View in Germany."
The opt-out is heavily promoted by German Mainstreet Media - and according to polls, up to 40% of properties may end up being blured - rendering the service pretty much useless for anything.
