The Czech Republic Bans
Google's Street View
Trending today is our favorite Search Engine Giant: Google--and the Czech Republic.
The authorities in the Czech Republic claim the search giant has failed to secure the necessary registration to expand their 'Street View' mapping service in the eastern European country. The Office for Personal Data Protection plans to speak more about the ban next week.
Spokeswoman Hana Stepankova declined to give many details to the Associated Press Tuesday, however Google has been investigated for failure to meet the requirements needed to collect the data used in the 'Street View'. The U.S. based Internet company has been under fire from a variety of European countries because of privacy concerns over the expansion of their popular map feature including Germany and Spain.
Google acknowledged the privacy breach in an apology last spring.
