[BBC] Google accused of criminal intent over StreetView data - Page 5

post #41 of 42
I never read anything about it so I might be repeating stuff, but I imagine Google was trying to find free WiFi spots to list on their StreetView, but it's kinda hard to distinguish free and someone's open network unless you filter by the name and even then it might not be 100% so oops on Google's part I guess.

They're not stealing the data really; just noting that the window is open. and taking a quick peek inside. If I understand what happened correctly
