Just to let you know, I am not a fan boy or a sun boy but I did flag a post of you because , like many other Make users of SketchUp , or any other software if you would ask me , don't take time to read any TOS , they would just agree and go on with the program. I flagged the post because you violated this :
You agree to hold harmless and indemnify Trimble and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from and against any claim, suit or action arising from or in any way related to your use of the Software or your violation of these Terms and Conditions, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. In such a case, Trimble will provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action."
Personally , I feel that the impact of Google's prior decision of giving a free version of SketchUp (When owning them) had a great impact on further development of the software as is. Yes , I did read
and , for what it is worth , I am a pro user since version 5, upgrading and maintenancing ever since, so the total would be a new licence price now. Not like any other software I know of. Repeatedly saying Trimble making promisses to (not) paying customers doesn't make it so. Take your beef with Trimble on a direct level, gather others with you , if you like, but don't use this platform, you can create you're own.
Personally, if I would have to pick a lawyer, I would pick one who would take the time in reading all the EULA and not the lawyer that would encourage violating TOS overall, especially Trimble. Grabbing a (good) Image isn't the problem. It is the implementation in the software via the API which violates Google TOS, as it seems for five years now, already.
You might as well try to stand up against Google, though not on this platform, since they took our data and sell it.
