MONTREAL —

Google's Street View is one of the key features that separated it from other map services. Detailed pictures of how streets actually look helped users get a feel for a place.

But sometimes those pictures get a little too personal.

Gizmodo reports Google had to pay a $2,000 fine after a Street View camera captured a woman's cleavage. The woman was sitting outside her door when the picture was taken. 

She originally claimed that the photo triggered a bout of depression, Gizmodo reports. A judge disagreed and gave Google a relatively light sentence of $2,250 Canadian dollars, which translates to about $2,000 U.S. dollars.
