Google Wins Privacy Suit Regarding Street View

Last year a Pittsburgh couple sued Google because they deemed Street View of their house a violation of their privacy. Now, the judge in the case disagrees with the couple.

As many have pointed out, their case has actually brought more attention to their home. Also, the couple says Street View devalued their home, a claim that would be hard to prove. In the past year, many have seen their home's value decline, but it's due to the economy and mortgage crisis, not Google Street View.
