Swiss Privacy Concerns Over Google Street View

A Swiss privacy protection official (Hanspeter Thür of the EDÖB) asks Google for their Street View service to (my translation, though the auto-translation from French – as opposed to the auto-translation from German – is superb):

Some of these seem odd to me at first glance (like the one about anonymizing schools and hospitals – Google is shooting publicly visible space there, so at first glance trying to prevent this seems both paranoid as well as futile). Google is given 30 days to clarify whether they want to accept these recommendations. If Google rejects the recommendation, the matter will may be moved up a place in the Swiss federal administrative hierarchy.
