Anti-Google Germans Close To Grabbing Pitchforks and Torches?

A recent video of local Germans chasing a Google Street View car taking pictures of their neighborhood was almost like something out of an old monster movie, all they need were the pitchforks and torches.

Has Google become the new cultural imperialist forcing American ideals throughout the world? Seems the attacks on Google from Europe and Asia right now almost echo those against Walt Disney during the last century.

Last year the Germans had kicked back about saving IP addresses – making the act illegal. Now the villagers are revolting against the invasion of their privacy by the photo teams from Google.
