Nano is right, is is submissive urination. It doesn't have anything to do with being housebroken.  therefore, it is very important to NOT correct or punish him for peeing, do not tell him "no" or anything- It will just make the problem worse.  One of my mom's dogs that she got after I moved out would pee when I initiated contact.  Like Nano said, if i just let him approach me and gently pet his chest he was okay.  (petting the chest and chin is less "threatening" than on top of the head) Also have your guests refrain from making direct eye contact.  
Try to get him out a lot to meet new people so he can build his confidence.
Good luck!
