Crf00 writes with this report excerpted from Blogoscoped: "'Spiegel reports that German shutterbug and IT guide Jens Best wants to alone take snapshots of all those (German) buildings which people asked Google Street View to remove. He then wants to add those photos to Picasa, including GPS coordinates, and in turn re-connect them with Google Maps. Jens believes that for the w3 "we must apply the same rules as we do in the real world. Our right to take panoramic snapshots, for instance, or to take photographs in public spaces, both base laws which bound that one may photograph those things that are visible from public streets and places.' Jens says that for his believe in the right of photographing in public places, as last resort he's even willing to go to jail. Spiegel says Jens already found over 200 people who want to help out in this project and look for removed locations in Google Street View, as there's no conclusive list of such places published by Google."
