According to the Bing license  removing the Bing logo is a violation.  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:Bing_license.pdf One of the restrictions for use is: " Restrictions on your use: We do have some restrictions on your use of the service. You may not: [...] change, obscure or remove any search box or any portion of the results, including, without limitation, any logo, trademark, copyright or other notice of Microsoft or its suppliers, digital watermarks, or any advertisement; and if the required logos and copyright notices are not included in the service generated content, you shall add the logos and copyright notices provided by Microsoft to the service generated content as described in the SDKs; " Regarding attribution it further states: " Content Attribution Restrictions outside of the United States: To the extent applicable local law prohibits you from attributing content sources by displaying their logos with the service, you must prominently display the source of the Microsoft Bing Maps Platform data as a text string with the service at all times. Please refer to the image below as an example of an acceptable way to attribute source data with a text string: " The image shows the Bing logo and textual copyright strings for the data sources. A compromise to prevent jmapviewer and its rdeps forced into non-free when the logo is included, may be to use a text string. Although the quoted clause only applies to jurisdictions outside the US. It's probably wise to contact map...@microsoft.com and ask them about the requirements for the Bing logo.
