Google sued by man caught peeing in Google Street View

Google sued by man caught peeing in Google Street View Google has been sued, again, over invasion of privacy.
The French villager was caught urinating by Google's camera teams, and the image is available on Google's Street View part of Maps.

That photo, the man says, has made him the butt of jokes in his small village. Although it is Google's policy to blur faces, the village is small enough that he was still recognizable.

In the suit, the man is seeking 10,000 euros in damages and demanding the picture be replaced.

A French court will make the ruling on the complaint on March 15.

What you do in Public, is public. I'm not really sure why people don't understand this. It has been this way forever.

I don't know why he is so pissed. He seems comfortable peeing in public and google street view takes pictures in public so it is his fault. When are people going to take account for their own actions? I hate this modern world where someone screws up and gets caught and then they sue instead of just admitting they screwed up.

Maybe he's just mad about the genetic code he's been handed & that's what's got him all flabbergasted? I mean if he didn't have all that much a problem whizzing out the back door to begin with why should it be an issue now.

You're only as good as your last f*k up. If he'd shut his mouth, somebodies bound to f*k up bigger. Rule of averages...

if he pee'd in his backyard and it was closed off they shouldnt of shown his backyard or been recording it without his permission.however ive seen else where it was apparently his front yard.get caught peeing in public here in south australia the police can issue you with a $50 fine i know plenty of people who have been caught out (by police) when drunk.

In this stupid college town where I'm at they could could finance a couple public toilets right out on the street to stop a bunch of the stupidity with all the public indecency & intoxication citations they've thrown on these kids. But then with these idiot rednecks & the university thinking its a banking institution I don't see that solution coming about very soon.

nowadays it getting to the point everywhere that if its a finable offence police will be there in 30 seconds or less.if its not finable police will have donuts and cofee and might actualy chase it up eventually.
