Google on Friday said that it remained on course to begin its Street View mapping service in Germany this year despite the thousands of people who have asked the company to delete their properties.
"The number of requests will not have an effect on our plans to launch Street View this year," said Kay Oberbeck, a Google spokesman in Hamburg. "We are making a tremendous amount of effort and a tremendous investment to bring Street View to Germany. We realize that privacy is a very sensitive issue in Germany and are doing what needs to be done to address everyone's concerns."
