244,000 Germans Opt Out of Google Street View

Google announced on Thursday that 244,000 people in Germany have opted to have images of their homes removed from its Street View product, and pointed out that the number represents only 2.7 percent of German households. Google has been working with regulators over privacy concerns with Street View since last year. Germany is the only country in which people were able to opt out before the launch of the service–in other countries, people have to email the company after Street View is active.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
