"Street" Photography over the line?

Saw this article today online at USATODAY about photographer Arne Svenson taking photos from his NYC apartment into open windows across the street:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/05/17/nyers-furious-over-photos-taken-through-windows/2193353/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+usatoday-NewsTopStories+%28News+-+Top+Stories%29&utm_content=Google+Feedfetcher

I'm pretty liberal about my tactics shooting in "public", but I wonder whether this crosses the line, even though the photographer claims you can't see people's faces.  My guiding principle in my street photography is not to embarrass anyone.

This negative publicity is bound to ignite the flames against street photography.
