Google Will Shut Street View Down For The Swiss Over Anonymity

Google's hitting Switzerland where it'll hurt, by threatening to take away their googlez (well, Street View), if the Swiss courts don't overturn a ruling which forces Google to ensure anonymity for anyone who happens to be snapped for Street View.

While other countries (hi, Germany!) have taken umbrage with Street View over privacy issues, Google's never slammed a country like this before. Grab the popcorn, Swiss readers, for this will be an interesting watch. [AP]
