My understanding of the

My understanding of the situation is that the legal wording of the Terms of Service scared people. In reality, the original Terms of Service were broader and just as far reaching. Instagram could basically do anything with your photos before being acquired by Facebook. These new TOS were just worded differently and specifically for Facebook.

Most start-ups have very broad TOS to modify as they grow and change directions. Who reads the TOS? Did you know Apple can delete your objectionable data from the cloud? However, Apple does not define what is objectionable to them.

No Legalese should be used in the TOS. Only specific, clear and honest explanations of the use of our data will prevent another exodus in the future.

By the way, Psi Gangham Style, made 8.1 million dollars on Youtube. And that includes the kickbacks he made from all the covers of his song.
