Remember the man who bought a court case against Google when a roving Google image caught him pee’ing in his front garden? He said that the image made him the laughing stock of his home town. If he was hoping to keep his indiscretion quiet he failed when news of his law suit went global.
The judge in the case threw it out as a litiginous case, the man having tried to sue Google France for the threat to his privacy instead of Google Inc – the publishers. Google had already removed the picture from its site when the man complained but they refused to pay compensation. The judge ordered the man to pay Google’s costs.
