Google Street View Complaint To The Information Commissioner engine msg:3877684 3:39 pm on Mar 24, 2009 (gmt 0) Google Street View Complaint To The Information Commissioner [ news.bbc.co.uk]
A formal complaint about Google's Street View has been sent to the Information Commissioner (ICO).
Drawn up by lobby group Privacy International (PI), it cites more than 200 reports from members of the public identifiable via the service.
PI wants Street View shut down while the ICO investigates the service.
"The ICO has repeatedly made clear that it believes that in Street View the necessary safeguards are in place to protect people's privacy," said Google.

I only tried street view for the first time last week and I can see this from both points of view. I am in awe of the sheer size of the project and the technichal aspects involved, then I think of the privacy concerns, and they are out of this world.
