As an indie developer, I do not have a business address and am very uncomfortable advertising my home address to the entire web. I fear recriminations from users and fraud or identify theft from people scanning the web.

There's no need of this new policy. The EU law states that you have to furnish your address to your customer. One become my customer after it have buy my product, not BEFORE. With this new policy, Google are going to publish my address, to make it public, not to furnish it to my customer (this, by the way, already happen!). This new policy is totally wrong.

I believe developers have the same right to privacy that anyone else does.

I don't think they should have to disclose that kind of personal, sensitive information

I am a developer and I do not want users to know my address displayed publically if I publish to Google Play. I enjoy the Android/Chrome platform. It it would be a shame to stifle the innovation of great apps with this draconian law.

As a freelance writer who works at home, I can understand not wanting to plaster it all over the Internet--exposing oneself and family to the entire world, which includes some not-so-nice people who may take it upon themselves to express their "discontent" physically, rather than by using online communications. That can be extremely dangerous for folks who work from home and do not have a separate business address. So, Google, why not allow those who work from home publish an alternative address like a P.O. box?

With identify theft on the rise, this is an important way to protect subscribers.
