Czech Office Again Blocks Google Street View

The Czech Office for Personal Data Protection, or UOOU, reiterated its refusal to allow Google to collect personal data for its Street View mapping service citing legal hurdles and the intrusive nature of the service. "A data [collector] seated outside the European Union is obliged to appoint a representative on the territory of the Czech Republic. Google Inc, an American entity, has failed to do this," Igor Nemec, UOOU chairman, told reporters.
