Privacy, or Harassment?

February 27, 2010 0:46:09.382

I take a skeptical view of this demand from the EU that Google change out streetview pictures every six months rather than every 12:

Currently, Google holds Street View images for a year but the EU's Article 29 Data Protection Working Party has said the search engine must chop this in half, as 12 months is a "disproportionate" length of time.

If there's a privacy issue, I fail to see how 12 months would be bad, but six months would be ok. This looks an awful lot like a way to raise Google's costs to me.
