You may have missed Google Street View's recent launch in the UK. Seems some folks aren't pleased finding themselves captured in compromising situations on camera so they've demanded Google strip their images from the system.
One fellow caught entering a London sex shop has been removed, the faces of poorly performing footballers on a billboard have been obscured, a man getting sick on the side of the road and many others have been voluntarily replaced with blackness by the Goog.
Company officials are quick to point out anyone may have their image stripped should it be objectionable or compromising, which will inevitably lead to an awfully spotty version of Street View. Expect red-light districts to sadly be eternally plunged into blackness in short order. [BBC]
