The OS looses out to Google

It seems that local authorities who have to pay the O.S for a license to use the OS map data are now turning to Google for free versions of the same.

It’s an interesting debate, how much longer can the OS last under this sort of pressure? Telephone companies are under pressure from Skype etc. GPO under pressure from email? What is the future for these large companies?
