A Little Google Copyright Irony
The other day we driving and the Google Street View cam car passed going the other way and I thought to myself…”I wish I had my camera! It would be great fun to follow the Googmobile around a take pictures”. You know…to see if the Goog people get irritated and stuff. But. I didn’t have my camera.
When I got home, I looked up the address here on the old street view. I guess maybe I was thinking that the folks at Goog have some hyper-speed up-link and they are posting these things in real time. They aren’t.
Anyway, here’s a screen shot of the front of the apartment here that’s kind of interesting in light of the news that Google is getting a Quarter Million copyright take down requests a week…
…right under the window on the left there is a copyright watermark of some sort. It’s hard too see, faint. Here’s a zoom…
Apparently, and no doubt other folks have pointed this out but it’s news to me….so, Apparently Google is copyrighting images of your house!
So, next time I see the Googlodytes out roaming around acquiring intellectual property, I will track them and get some copyright photos of my own. You should too.
