Reference to   #74107

quotation from the error-description of the referenced bug:

"When trying to load Bing Sat images with "Imagery > Bing Sat" menu,
JOSM pops up an error dialog saying "Input == null!".

There is no other message on the terminal used to invoke it when
the error occurs."

The bug ist not located in the josm-package but in the jmapviewer package.

The file "src/org/openstreetmap/gui/jmapviewer/images/bing_maps.png" is
removed from the  upstrem version. I suggest licence issues.

This file is mandatory for using the bing-maps layer.

My solution to enable the bing-layer again:

@@ -173,11 +173,7 @@ public class BingAerialTileSource extend
     public Image getAttributionImage() {
-        try {
-            return ImageIO.read(JMapViewer.class.getResourceAsStream("images/bing_maps.png"));
-        } catch (IOException e) {
             return null;
-        }

After installation of the new build josm package the bing-layer  ist displayed.
Of course the bing-logo designated as an overlay ist missing.

Maybe an conflict with the usage terms  from Microsoft?
