Bangalore Police have told Google to stop the cars clicking photos for Street View because of several restrictions on photography by foreigners or foreign firms in India.

We are paranoid - every bridge has a board - Photography Prohibited. Do they not know that you can click everything with an excellent resolution from a satellite. There is this story about one chap requesting NASA for a satellite photograph of his house. He was refused for security reasons. So he requested the Soviets, and and got a whole sheaf of pictures within a fortnight.

I thought the excuse in Bangalore was privacy!
