Why does not this site have a Google logo for using Google Maps? I want to do that. How?

How can I remove (assuming it's legal) the Google logo and "terms of use" wording from my Google Maps like this site did: http://fwix.com/

UPDATE

This is in fact the standard Google Map as well. Fwix calls for the map the standard way, by using http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false as well as the map itself even states that "map data 2010 Google". It just appears they have used CSS and/or JavaScript to hide the Google logo and "terms of use" link from being displayed on the map.


If you remove the logo, you are breaking 9.4 of the terms of service.

9.4 Attribution Content provided to you through the Service may contain the trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features of Google, its partners, or other third party rights holders of content indexed by Google. You may not delete or in any manner alter these trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.

Looks like a bad idea. It is a free service [for the most part], if you do not like it, pay for the rights to use the maps and code your own.
