According to Computerworld, the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) is turning the tables on Google–demonstrating how you can easily use Google services to invade the privacy of a top Google executive.

The dossier includes a photo of what appears to be the front gate and car park area of the exec’s opulent California manor, including the license plates of several luxury cars outside the home, the executive’s landscaping company car, and a photo showing the name of the neighbour’s home security company.

The executive is not named by the NLPC, but it’s rumored to be Larry Page.

Here’s an example of what’s included in the report:

  • I think it is a great news!!!

  • Fantastic! It will be interesting to see reactions!

  • This is interesting because if this kind of information was deemed invasion of privacy it would raise serious questions about freedom of press issues with what can and can’t be photographed within public view.

    I have a feeling this is going to be a big sting, sure, but any action will be minimal.

  • Or, Larry won’t care… 🙂

    It’s slightly different than a streets view catching him eating a Twinkie in his boxers while picking up his morning paper.

  • What? This is nuts… guess I am going to be crashing a party at Larry’s… I’ll be in the grotto with the Google groupies praising the search engine.

  • Heheheheh! Brilliant! This should lead to an interesting reaction on behalf of Google. A bit close to home, this is a sure fire way of getting a response, that’s for sure!

  • @Blue SEO – Absolutely hilarious.

    This action definitely makes a statement – that’s for sure!

  • This absolutely great!

  • Lovely when your own technology turns to bite you in the arse. Wonder how many little greyed-out areas will suddenly appear in Maps and Earth over the following days.
