The Czech Republic's privacy watchdog says Google has not been granted permission to expand its mapping feature "Street View" because it invades peoples' privacy.
The Czech Republic has refused to grant Google permission to expand its "Street View" because the mapping feature invades peoples' privacy, the government's privacy watchdog said Wednesday.
But office head Igor Nemec said Google, while gathering the data, uses technology that "disproportionately invades citizens' privacy."
Nemec, the Czech official, said the 'Street View' cameras are placed too high _ 9 feet (2.7 meters) tall _ which allow them to see "over the fence" and into people's homes.
