Also don't forget that Google Street View data is significantly out of
date, because most of it was captured in Summer 2009. Copying a large
quantity of outdated data from Google Street View would be a dead
giveaway if the street has changed since the photo was taken (e.g.
because of new businesses replacing old businesses, etc.)
