Hi George!

I was in no way trying to miscredit or blame you, I just tried to point out many of the technical and legal problems
involved in integrating map databases in a desktop application.

I am sorry if I offended you.

But I'm still interested how you can get around the Virtual Earth terms of use?

Below is the quote from the Virtual Earth terms of use:
