Thanks for pointing that out. The project is indeed free software.

It is the license my employer recommends in its guidelines for non-work related 
projects, which need approval before releasing: Apache 2.0.

The manual procedure for making the package work is not simple, requiring one 
to navigate Google's "development console" in order to create keys and such. 
Before adding it to ELPA/Emacs I would think it would be better to have a 
"complete" solution that skips that step. The complete process is described
