it would be very sad, if this would be the case.
But the blogpost is abit confusing. The Section 10.2 (a) (ii) of the
actual terms and conditions (https://developers.google.com/maps/terms)
"...For clarity, you are NOT 're-implementing or duplicating' Google
Maps/Google Earth if your Maps API Implementation provides substantial
additional features or content beyond Google Maps/Google Earth, and
those additional features or content constitute the primary defining
characteristic of your Maps API Implementation."
So the main question in my opinion is, wether Openlayers is related to
10.2 (a) (i) and if not, if the example in 10.2 (a) (ii) for not
reimplementing is related to Openlayers.
Does anybody know a link to the text of the Google T&C before this april
