Google pays $1.4 million fine in Italy over StreetView concerns


Google has paid a 1 million euro ($1.4 million) fine imposed by Italys data protection watchdog over complaints that cars it used to record images on Italian streets in 2010 were not clearly recognizable, the regulator said on Thursday. Cars belonging to the giant of Mountain View roamed Italys streets without being entirely recognizable as such, therefore not allowing the people present in those places to decide whether to be photographed or not, it said in a statement, referring to Googles base at Mountain View in California. Google has faced numerous privacy lawsuits in the United States and Europe, relating to services including Street View, which gives a panoramic perspective on streets around the world. We complied with everything the (regulator) required of us at the time, a Google spokeswoman said.
