Source Title:
Google disapprove...
Story Text:

Just a soon as i'd discovered the "Google Maps Wallpaper & Power of ten animations" site, so did Google. They looked at the site and decided it was against the Google Maps Terms of Service. This is what now appears on the site...shame, it was a really good idea.

Google is always happy to see developers interested in our products and we commend you on the service. That said, we would appreciate it if you voluntarily remove your service and stop using Google Maps on your web site. The service violates the Maps Terms of Service available at, and jeopardizes our ability to make Google Maps available to the public because it encourages non-personal use of Google Maps
