A short summary with my own opinion about that:
Weichert is against Street View, the others 15 privacy men of the Bundesländer say street view is more or less ok. Google now has to provide a tool for removing you, your house or your last visit in a porn cinema from street view BEFORE it launches in Germany. Peter Fleischer said in an interview that street view will launch in Germany in 2009 – i think in the end of this year.
Last autumn spokesman Keuchel said SV will come in Spring 2009

Previously, the data security bureaus ... met with Google. The internet company guaranteed that if there were objections to imagery, the respective snapshots would be made irrecognizable even "before publication".

Information requests and/ or objections are to be made via email to streetview-deutschland[put at-character here]google.com or via snail mail to ...>>
