Thieves ‘using Google Earth to steal koi carp’ – Technology.am

The evolution of the privacy issue continues. My mother was concerned about people posting information about their holiday travels.  At the sames time, many have begun to transmit their coordinates via GPS to connect with other friends by searchable proximity.  This alleged crime via Google Earth, however, falls into a “I know what’s in your backyard” category. Is it an invasion of privacy to peak if a company like Google has made the data public without our permission? Can I fill out a form somewhere that says my house is a little black square on the map? Should I be concerned or should I embrace it at the same level as my drooling over a kite boarding advertisement in Facebook that understands my interests? I guess I’d feel differently if I had Koi pond.
