Google Fined $US2000 For Street View Cleavage Shot

Google Fined $US2,000 for Street View Cleavage Shot

Google has been handed a fine from a Canadian court, after it was found to have embarrassed a woman and invaded her privacy by sticking a photo of her cleavage on Street View.

The woman claimed such high levels of embarrassment were caused by seeing the top-heavy photo of herself sitting outside her house in 2009 that it caused her emotional damage and triggered a bout of depression, although the judge disagreed and handed her a relatively small amount of compensation -- $US2250 CDN (around $US2000) -- for the shaming it triggered.
