The UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office has cleared the path for Google to introduce its controversial Street View service (called by some the ‘burglar’s charter’). The watchdog is satisfied that Google will provide an effective reporting service that allows individuals to contact the company and have their personal images such as faces and car number plates blurred. The Office also pointed out that lengthy delay between the images being taken by Google’s roaming photographic cars and publication meant that the chances of using the system to track people were very slim.
