I agree Demaestro, making things illegal just to protect people from a few unscrupulous people is not a good thing but a limit needs to be set here. The overhead imagery avaiable from Google now is getting close to the limits of what I would find acceptable.
My comment had more to do with the overhead imagery however in my area a street level view would provide many details about peoples back yards. There's a lot of neighborhoods where that would be the case. In some places you can see clear across to the next block.
Yes and the first one they dove up quite a lengthy private road marked as private property and appeared to have images that were take right from the guys driveway.
