The German government has reacted to public privacy concerns about Google Street View by demanding internet companies work out a code of practice to protect the data they collect.
Thomas de Maizière, interior minister, said voluntary regulation could render legislation “at least in part redundant”, a signal that the government is softening its line on regulation of new internet services.
Google this summer kicked off a controversial debate in Germany when it announced it would put photographs of streets of 20 German cities on the web by the end of the year.
