Submission + - Google claims a TOS violation on RouteBuilder for using the Map API (medium.com)

acm writes: RouteBuilder has been using the Google Maps API to help people share their routes (bicycling, hiking, etc) for a decade. Last week, Google sent an email demanding Routebuilder stops using the API:

In particular,your application violates clause 10.4(c), which does not allow developers to create a wrapper — an application that re-implements or duplicates the Google Maps website or mobile app, or any of the Google Maps APIs.

Why did it take the Google Maps Team 10 years to decide they don't want pedometer-type sites to use their API?
