Via ITWire: Way back in April news broke that the unlikely sounding Mr and Mrs Boring were to take legal action against Google on grounds of a privacy violation. The crime in question being the photographing by Google of the Boring house, and its subsequent inclusion as part of the Google Maps Street View service.
Anyway, that was then and this is now. And now is when the Boring case gets a little more interesting. In a preliminary statement to Google's US District Court motion to dismiss the Boring federal complaint, the search giant makes a somewhat dramatic observation.
[...] the Google six lawyer team asserts "Today's satellite-image technology means that even in today's desert, complete privacy does not exist. In any event, Plaintiffs live far from the desert and are far from hermits."
