Google Streetview Airbrushing Their European Edition

googlemaps.pngGoogle’s Streetview was celebrated at launch, but caught some flack when they were captured the public in some embarrassing situations.

Google’s hoping to avoid similar issues when they complete their launch overseas. According to Google’s senior privacy council, Google will begin altering photos to make sure that faces and license plate numbers aren’t recognizable. The move’s more aggressive than how unflattering photos or personal information are being handled in the U.S., where users have to write in for image take downs. But if it’s embarrassing enough, chances are it’s already been plastered all over the internet.
