Google has to pay $1 in damages as a result of the driver of one of its Street View cars trespassing on the private property of a Pittsburgh-area couple by driving the vehicle equipped with panaromic cameras about the length of three football fields down a gravel driveway. The driver went past the "No Trespassing Private Road" sign and snapped photos of the house, swimming pool and other parts of the property before leaving.

Those images were eventually published on Google's Street View site, which lets users pick a point on a map and take a virtual walk down the street.
