    Hello,

    I had a question if anyone knew or could help me. I am trying to put a map on my site with google earth points of bike trails around the world and users can add points.

    There is already a site that does this similarly. I was wondering if I could grab the points from their map and put it on mine, or would that violate any type of copyright?

    I have 3 options

    1. Embed their google map on my site (does this have any risk or issue?)
    2. Pay someone to copy their points over there are over 10 thousand might be costly even for a worker from india

    3. is there any software or way to leech google points information off a map?

    so I guess im asking if im at risk of any copyright infringement or anything like that from any of this?

    Any help is appreciated!
