These rules only apply to entities licensed through the USA.
1. Google Maps often doesn’t use satellite images over cities. It often uses images taken from airborne platforms (Wikipedia):
“Although Google uses the word satellite, most of the high-resolution imagery of cities is aerial photography taken from aircraft flying at 800 feet (240 m) to 1,500 feet (460 m); however, most of the other imagery is from satellites.”
2. There are legal limits on what image resolution can be marketed commercially (book):
Ground sample distance (GSD) of 0.5 meters can be marketed generally by USA-authorized entities. GSD greater than 0.25 meters requires special permision.
3. Commercial entities can only take low-resolution space-based images of Israel (NOAA):
No USA entity can distribute high-resolution satellite photos of Israel. According to the Kyl-Bingaman Amendment requires “department or agency of the United States may issue a license for the collection or dissemination by a non-Federal entity of satellite imagery with respect to Israel only if such imagery is no more detailed or precise than satellite imagery of Israel that is available from commercial sources.”
