Following on from a recent camera outing by Google’s Street View team, an MP has called for privacy laws to be reviewed again, as members of the public are still not fully in support of the service.
As reported from MiltonKeynes.co.uk, UK MP Mark Lancaster thinks that the laws on Street View need to be tightened, or at least seek customers approval, before their homes are captured on Google’s cameras.
He stated in a recent interview: “Many people are uncomfortable about having their homes on show. They should be asked if they wish to be included.”
At the moment, Google do not break any privacy laws on Street View, as their cameras film on public land and blur any faces or licence plates.
Home owners are free to have their homes removed from the service, but only after it has appeared online. Let us know your thoughts on this.
Should privacy laws be tightened on Street View?
