Dave, friends,

Google has updated the TOS.

http://tapthehive.s483.sureserver.com/chrome.html

"UPDATE: At about 4:00PM EST, I've received the following note:
Here's an official response from Rebecca Ward, Senior Product Counsel
for Google Chrome:

"In order to keep things simple for our users, we try to use the same
set of legal terms (our Universal Terms of Service) for many of our
products. Sometimes, as in the case of Google Chrome, this means that
the legal terms for a specific product may include terms that don't
apply well to the use of that product. We are working quickly to
remove language from Section 11 of the current Google Chrome terms of
service. This change will apply retroactively to all users who have
downloaded Google Chrome.""

and the new terms:

11. Content license from you

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.

12. Software updates ...


Regards,
Victor Marks

[for IP if you wish]

Westlaw attempted to impose a similar term, claiming an unconditional
non-exclusive license for itself, on academic users of its BLACKBOARD law school classroom software for at least the first year of the roll- out --
which is on reason why I never used it (it's also closed-source...).

We believe this stuff because WE'VE SEEN IT DONE

Dave,

I am increasingly impressed and depressed by some people's
willingness to believe the worst even when the accusations are
obviously illogical.
