According to a story at, beginning January 1, 2012 Google will charge for use of the Google Maps API. The BBC says that it is rumored that Google will charge $4/1000 views in excess of 25000/day.

One of Google's pages on Google Maps Api indicates that there is currently both a free service and a paid premier service. These both seem to be different than what the BBC is reporting.
