Rob van Loben Sels: Yeah, they're not as aggressive with their policy. Facebook: "You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook" and goes on to say that while you grant them the right to use your IP while its posted, "This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account." So FB doesn't own your stuff FOREVER they way Google does.
Matthew Kiefel: You can revoke Google's license to your copyrighted works by cancelling your use of the services and sending them a letter. Kind of a pain in the rear, but you do have an out should you want to exercise it. Not that I'm defending this whole scheme. It still reeks.
Rob van Loben Sels: Yes, that has lame written all over it. They should never have access to make money off of your/our pieces of art (photography, paintings, music, etc.) without you/us getting anything for it -- that's completely ludicrous. That's like you visiting my house and parking your car in my driveway and then that inherently giving me permission to drive your car when ever I want, where ever I want, and without filling the gas tank back up. ;-) Like you said, P. U.
