Google Paid $1.4M Fine On Italy Street View Privacy Concerns

Google has paid a total sum of $1.4 Million fine to Italy. This is on the basis of the country’s data protection watchdog complaints as regards Google's Street View street-level image capturing cars that date back to 2010.
Authorities claims that Google failed to make its Street View cars clearly identifiable. They stated that the Street View cars must carry signs or stickers to indicate that they were capturing photographs.

It had also stipulated that Google must to publicize the locations its cars would be visiting ahead of time, on its website and in local news media — so Italians could choose to avoid the risk of being photographed.
