Google Street breaks UK Anti Terrorism laws

In a recent  update to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000, which states that a person commits an offence if ‘he collects or makes a record of information of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism…' adding: ‘ "record" includes a photographic or electronic record'.

"Section 76 expands on this, turning into a criminal anyone who ‘publishes or communicates' any information about a member of the armed forces or a police officer which is ‘of a kind likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism…'

So not wanting to break the law I decide not to publish the pictures that Google took of Policmen, or Police cars or even the cars parked in a Police station with an off duty Police officer getting into a car and the number plate clearly shown. but what happens  if we do have a terrorist attack and it’s proven that Google street view was used by terrorists ??
