Google urges US Apex Court to settle Street View privacy lawsuit
Google has reportedly asked the US Supreme Court to settle its Street View privacy lawsuit.
The ruling may have major consequences for the privacy of unprotected Wi-Fi networks, if the country's highest court decides to hear the case.
According to the Verge, the case centers on Street View's Wi-Fi sniffing program, which would automatically scan unencrypted networks Street View cars as a way of verifying the car's location.
The program was reportedly considered a violation of privacy, which led to a series of lawsuits by both states and individuals.
While Google maintained that the Wi-Fi sniffing was not illegal, a class action lawsuit was pushed against it by the federal appeals court in September.
