comment (How can I / Am I allowed to) Use Google Maps as a Texture on an OpenGL object?
Thank you Neil, see my question update above - you'll see it is not purely a licensing issue - there is a bit of implementation mixed in, as I could not find any way to download / access Google Map tiles as low level bitmaps. It seems like there used to be a simple way (similar to this wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_map_tilenames) but that it does not work anymore...

Thank you Gavin, this is helpful although it does not fully answers my question. I guess it is hard to make it entirely clear as I still am at the early stages of my application development process and I am not sure whether I will want to charge a fee for it... The application will be an Android app, using OpenGL to display a terrain, which I would like to texture up with Google Terrain tiles. Have a look at the update I made to my question - I made it clearer now.
