Google Chrome

As always, when a new software or web application is launched in the Internet by Google, the G company makes sure to store into it, its famous license, which specifies under which terms you can use what you got for free. That’s the famous Terms of Service. This terms are not the classic clauses you can not read because they are written in a tiny font at the end of some boring piece of paper. They are well written, divided into sections and located at the beginning of your software installation process. So that, before installing anything you are literally forced to agree to its conditions, otherwise the whole installation procedure will abort. One of the most important sections in Google Chrome Terms of Services (and other G software and web applications such as Gmail) is the 11 section which till some days ago stated that Google had rights to all content that users posted while using Chrome. As you well understand this sounded a little crazy! Because of this the whole Blogsphere, bloggers and users all together, raised and complained to Google. I mean, If I write an article or an e-mail by using Chrome, Google could claims its right to it? What? Of course, the big G got it right away and understood its mistake changing the Terms of Service into this:

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.
