Re: Streetview

No, slurping WiFi announcements is perfectly legal. It happens everywhere - lookup "purple WiFi" in York - you are tracked across the whole city. Supermarkets also do it to track your visits to the store

What Google did which was illegal was also slurp up the comms data from WiFi networks which is against the law
