Australia's Privacy Commissioner Orders Google To Destroy Street View Data [theregister.co.uk]
The Australian Privacy Commission has followed the lead of its global counterparts demanding that Google Australia immediately destroys payload data which was siphoned by the SteetView wi-fi data sucking car squads.

In a letter sent to Google’s Head of Public Policy and Government Affairs Iarla Flynn, Privacy Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim sent a strict edict that Google should immediately destroy the data additionally demanding that an independent third party confirm that the data has been destroyed.

Pilgram has also requested that Google commits to an audit to ensure “that no other disks containing this data exist, and to advise me once this audit is completed.”
