How is this legal?

According to Google their licenses with imagery suppliers is so prohibitive they have to aggressively pursue programs which use that imagery on anything other than a web page, so can someone explain how viewing the same data inside Second Life is legal?  Did Google renegotiate with their providers?  Is Second Life breaking the law?  Has Google been lying all along?

  1. Hey if google wants some weirdo with a horses head walking over their maps, who are we to say no?

  2. They will allow all uses of their imagery data until such time as it is going to make money for someone else.

    It’s possible to buy a license for Google Earth data. I suppose Second Life have one.
