I don't remember that 2nd paragraph; I think the old terms said you gave them a license to use your content as long as you used the service, not forever. Guess I'll have to close my account...

Is it me, or is that complete double speak. You retain all intellectual property rights...except once you upload it you lose what amounts to all your intellectual property rights. That's like - you own this car, except I can use it whenever I want or let anyone else use it whenever they want, for free, and oh, and if there are any problems that come from using the car, then its *your* car.
