Are those really terms for Google Earth and not for Google Maps? I get a
Norwegian translation on that URL, that does not mention Google Earth at
all.

These are the terms I have found for Google Earth:
http://earth.google.com/intl/en-US/license.html

These mention that you can only use the images in the Software, which I
understand to allow tracing as long as it is done with the Google Earth
trace tool.
