1. Repositioning Google Logo, Terms of Use and Copyrights ?

It is against the Terms of Service, para 7.4(d) and 9.3(a):

7.4 (d) Proprietary Rights Notices. You agree that you will not remove, obscure, 
or alter any proprietary rights notices (including copyright and trademark notices,
Terms of Use links, or Brand Features) that may be affixed to or provided
through the Service. Where such notices are not affixed within the Service,
you agree to display such notices according to the Maps APIs Documentation.

9.3 (a) display to the users of your Maps API Implementation the link to Google's 
Terms of Use as presented through the Service or described in the Maps APIs Documentation;

According to GoogleGroups some people explain how to move or remove these elements. But HTML code may change and broke the tricks.

A turn around could be CSS property overflow:hidden sets on GoogleMaps DIV or a wrapper DIV. It's legally border line but google do this on their own web site. Warning ! this CSS property can do side effects.
