Italy fines Google one million euros for Street View breach

'Google Cars not properly marked, citizens had no warning'

(ANSA) - Rome, April 3 - Google has been obliged to pay a fine of one million euros by Italy's privacy watchdog for the Internet giant's Street View service. The charge dates to 2010, when so-called Google Cars with mounted cameras and other devices roamed Italian streets without properly identifying themselves as such. The agency ruled this did not give citizens the opportunity to avoid being photographed as Google mapped out Italian alleys and thoroughfares.
