His concern is with the ambiguity of Google T&Cs about deriving things
from their map, however Ed Parsons clarified this a little bit when he
stated you could publicly distribute your favourite hiking trail and
so on, but not vectorise every street, it seems to me boundaries
wouldn't really be the same as vectorising every street.
