Ah but you're forgetting that we're not playing with Y! here, we're actually 
playing by proxy with the owners of the image data (i-Cubed?) who are a 
member of the old guard of the geodata world.

From what I can see, Y! are allowing us to do whatever their license with the 
upstream provider allows them to do.
