"From the beginning, we felt confident that Google Earth's technology does not infringe Skyline's patent," Google spokesman Ricardo Reyes said Wednesday.
On a related note, a new feature for Google Maps was announced today. Now you can see photos of different locations, buildings, and things related to them. Lets say you’re going to a restaurant, you can look it up in Google Maps and check out pictures of their dishes first. If you are a business owner you can upload pictures of your business for other to see through Google’s Local Business Center.
