THE RULING: Switzerland's supreme court says Google doesn't need to be perfect when it comes to privacy. A lower court had required the company to guarantee absolute anonymity for people pictured in its popular Street View service.
MARGIN OF ERROR: The Swiss Federal Tribunal says up to 1 percent of images can be "insufficiently anonymized."
WHAT THIS MEANS: Google welcomed the supreme court verdict but left open whether it would now withdraw its previous threat to remove all pictures of Switzerland from Street View.
