India Forms Group To Address Google Earth Concerns

The Indian government has formed an, "expert group" to suggest ways Google Earth can safeguard the country's interests SDA Asia reported recently. India, which has strict legal restrictions on satellite images and aerial photographs has been one of the most vocal critics of the online mapping service. In the past, spokespersons for Google have indicated their willingness to meet with Indian officials to discuss their concerns. However, it's not clear if this, "expert group" has contacted Google about meeting yet.
