Man Sues Google After Cameras Catch Him Pissing In His Garden

Quote:
A man is suing Google after its Street View cameras caught him urinating in his garden in western France.
The 50-year-old villager claims neighbours have recognised him in the online images and have made him a laughing stock.
The unnamed man said he thought he was hidden from view by his closed gate as he relieved himself in November 2010.

The 50-year-old villager claims neighbours have recognised him in the online images and have made him a laughing stock:

But he was caught in the act by a passing Street View camera, which are mounted on the rooves of cars.
His lawyer Jean-Nokl Bouillaud said: 'My client was caught in the privacy of his own home with the gate closed.
'But he discovered the image while looking at images of his own house, and then realised other people in the village had seen the picture too.

'It's a small village and everyone recognised him. He has become a laughing stock.'
Mr Bouillaud did not explain why the man had chosen to urinate outside at his home in the village with a population of 3,000 in the Maine-et-Loire region, in France's Loire Valley.
But he added: 'Everyone has the right to a degree of secrecy.
'In this particular case, some may say it's more amusing than serious.
'But if he had been caught kissing a woman other than his wife, he would have had the same issue.'
The man was demanding that Google remove the photo from the Internet and pay him 8,000 pounds in damages for invasion of his private life and illegal use of his image, Mr Bouillaud said.
Google's French lawyer Christophe Bigot asked a court in the city of Angers to declare the complaint null and void on the grounds that Google Maps is owned by the company's US headquarters, and not by Google France.
Mr Bigot added: 'Besides that, Google Street View has a mechanism in place where people caught on camera can blur out their own image with a few simple clicks of the mouse.'
The court is due to make a ruling on the case on March 15.

LOL! That's what he gets. I'll pee outside, but I make sure no one's coming. And maybe it's night.

Still, though, he could have just said he had his arms folded on his chest... it doesn't really look like he is peeing to me.

Sounds like he showed it to his friends, said "Look, I was pissing!" and they said "You should sue Google, friend."
