Google Streets and privacy

The BBC have a report that suggests that a complaint has been made to the Information Commissioner about Google streets infringing peoples right to privacy.

My concern is that should the ICO rule against Google this would set a precedent in law that would effectively prohibit or significantly restrict the taking photographs whilst in a public place.

This may have implications for both amateur and professional photographers I would be interested to see other peoples views on this issue and if my concerns are justified
