    Google Earth Free

    I know there's many threads on this around but I just need a quick answer.

    Is Google Earth Free ok to use in school or is there some licensing issue?
    Either way, can someone point me to some official say on it so I can show the people who want to know.

    Ta.

    It is free to use but to give you the back history.

    This all started when an email was leaked from google saying that could install it but person who write email sorted back tracked.
    Then it become official all was great with life until..

    Someone noticed there was a clause in license that said if you not in USA you have to confirm with your local reseller.

    Anyway I contacted the reseller (not got printout of email in front of me at moment so name escapes me and I can't see list of uk resellers).

    Who confirmed it was ok to install the free version I will dig out the details of the reseller so people can contact themselves and get it in writing.
