Dan is right, this fits in the other thread.
I hope your post and this answer get's moved by moderation.
If your info is true, then I agree that, even if I'm not the one who should say if it's small or not, I imagine that 10000$ would be a relativelly small fee to pay, considering the idea I have for the amount of Sketchup Pro users existing...
In fact, considering we are talking about Google and a very expensive to get data, I think 10000$ is far too small considering all Trimble's database.
I suspect there is a catch there.
