You are *taking* the picture however, with a mechanical device while you 
are excersizing creativity over it's content.  It's your creativity that 
creates the copyrightable image, not who owns the mechanism.  That's not the case 
with Google satellite images.  There is no creativity involved.

However this

seems to give another alternative using a public domain database of images.
