Google has launched Street View in the UK and while many are happy to virtually explore, some are angered by the images that are now publicly available. Google is complying with the less-than-thrilled by blacking out images of the disappointed and their homes.
When an image is blacked out, a message stating "This image is not available" appears instead.
Still, Google continues to photograph the UK. They've already photographed 22,360 miles of streets in 25 UK cities.
Recently, Google won a lawsuit brought against them by an unhappy couple whose home had been photographed in the U.S.
