    People cling to the quaint notion, long outdated as it is, that they are entitled to privacy out there on the street. Such a thing just does not exist. But you will notice that in Google street views where people are in the scene, their faces have been blurred or pixelated — they are not that easily recognised, if at all. (I do not know if this is the approach by Google globally or by country) Can it be seen as an attempt by Google to provide token privacy to individuals in a public space in its undoubtedly benevolent (and undeniably beneficial!) project of documenting the world we live in? If the faces of individuals were not blurred, would that give rise to an avalanche of complaints about the need to "respect the privacy and identity of individuals" (or whatever other cute term you would to call it) that would be summarily consigned to the bin by Google? Google's defence is long, winding and convoluted. Unfortunately, a European court found against Google that people have a right to be forgotten, and unsurprisingly an avalanche or requests was received. And what did Google do? Nothing. Back to their lawyers to find away to defeat the ruling...
