    I work for an online travel company which sells hotel rooms at discounted rates. We would like to use street-level maps exported from MapPoint to display our hotel locations on our web site. Maps used on our web site will cover the US, Canada, and Europe.

    According to the microsoft web site and EULA, it seems we are permitted to use the maps on our web site if we do not re-sell them for profit. However I want to verify that there is not some sort of commercial use restriction that prohibits our company from using them in the manner described above.

    Can you provide further clarification here? I e-mailed the
    Microsoft Permissions/Copyright Group (Law & Corporate Affairs), but their reply only provided a link to the Microsoft Permission Website, which does not address this issue.

    The MapPoint license agreement contains two relevant
    restrictions. The first one is the "no resale" clause. In your
    situation, if you just post the maps on your website and don't charge
    your customers for viewing or downloading these maps, you are in safe
    territory. The other restriction is the cap on the number of maps you
    are allowed to post. This cap is 1,000 maps. If you need to post in
    excess of 1,000 maps, you need to purchase more than one license of
    MapPoint. If the number of maps is under 1,000, a single MapPoint
    license will suffice.
