Oh, Canada

Google ordered to pay woman for displaying her cleavage in Street View

A Canadian judge has ordered Google to pay Maria Pia Grillo $2,250 plus interest for displaying "part of her breast" on its Street View feature. The judge ruled that Google invaded Grillo's privacy.

In the 17-page decision, the judge ruled that Grillo suffered "shock and embarrassment" when she saw herself on Google Maps' Street View in 2009. The photo showed Grillo sitting on her front stoop wearing a dress and leaning forward, revealing cleavage.

Grillo said that her co-workers mocked her after seeing the image. The photo, taken by Google's Street View camera cars, had "enough information to identify her," even though her face had been blurred, GigaOm reports. Google has now blurred Grillo's cleavage in the photo, too.
