The KML is not a problem, only if someone makes a screenshot or
whatever from the whole thing with the Google Earth layer visible,
that would have to be CC-BY-SA licensed meaning that he can't
distribute such a screenshot unless Google also agrees to CC-BY-SA
which they won't ever do. But as long as you only distribute the KML
We have a legal-talk list that is the ideal place for these
discussions should anyone want to take the matter further ;)
