Google+ "Pages" Coming For Businesses

Google’s head of Commerce and Local Jeff Huber confirmed what some people were hoping for: the imminent arrival of Google+ pages for entities. This was in a comment on Mike Blumenthal’s blog:And pre-emptively answering a question — yes, we will have (smb) business profile pages on Google+. I can’t announce a launch date yet, but we want to make them great, and we’re coding as fast as we can.

There has been some talk about Google’s Terms of Service and whether photographers should be ok with it.

This seems to have started with Scott Bourne’s blog post: http://photofocus.com/2011/07/06/google-plus-read-the-fine-print-before-you-sign-up/ and popularized by this Washington Post article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/google-may-carry-dangers-for-photographers/2011/07/08/gIQAr2Ea3H_blog.html

I’m not a lawyer, but I would like to point out the fact that both of these articles leave out the last sentence in clause 11.1 of Google’s Terms of Service (http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS):

11.1 You retain copyright and any other rights you already hold in Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling Google to display, distribute and promote the Services and may be revoked for certain Services as defined in the Additional Terms of those Services.

+Denise Howell, who actually is a lawyer, has a thoughtful article about the TOS on her blog. In the article, she draws much attention to this sentence. Her conclusion is that the Google TOS isn’t perfect, but it’s also nothing to panic about:

Because I don’t want to get into an extended discussion about the TOS, I’m disabling comments on this post.
