Of course I have read the short license text at 

It says that as long as we follow Google's protocol standard, they 
won't sue us for infringing on their patents ("patents necessarily 
infringed by implementation of this specification").  Oh, how very 
generous.  But what if we want to implement some of their features 
in MediaWiki without following their protocol?  That is where we 
should be worried.  What exactly is it that they have patented?
