To see or not to see

Fighting to protect her privacy, Barbara Streisand is in the news over at The Smoking Gun regarding her lawsuit against Kenneth Adelman's internet distribution of high definition photographic images of the California coastline which happen to include her elegant Malibu estate. The suit claims the photos undermine Streisand's diligent attempts to protect her privacy and herself from "unwanted intrusion into her domestic environment" and otherwise "shield her private life from public view." The suit further claims that Adelman is flippant and uncooperative with respect to Streisand's privacy concerns.

While I agree that photographic images of the California coastline should not be considered the private property of those who own the property contained in them, a search on Adelman's website for "streisand" will yield the photograph of Streisand's estate. This from a website whose intended purpose is "to create an aerial photographic survey of the California Coast and update it on a periodic basis."

Is a survey of the coastline truly Adelman's intent and purpose and not to profit from her name (as well as from the names of others)? The photograph is even labeled "Streisand Estate, Malibu."

It will be interesting from a privacy issue perspective to see how this whole thing pans out.
