You pay for the SERVICE not for the API. You could implement the same API but without the data their service is providing it would be useless...Also, Google DID NOT copyright those APIs, if you look carefully you will see that the whole API is a simple REST like webservice. There is nothing to copyright.

State of ATI/AMD drivers on Linux is rather poor, much worse than nVidia. My recommendation is to stay away from AMD GPUs if you plan to use Linux. If you are looking for more details about AMD & Linux read this article on Phoronix:
