Free Online Storages – Pros and Cons

Before you decide which public free sharing software are you going to use, check the following points.

Dropbox

Reservation of Rights. THIS AGREEMENT DOES NOT GRANT DROPBOX ANY RIGHTS TO CUSTOMER’S OR END USERS’ FILES OR THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS EMBODIED IN THOSE FILES EXCEPT FOR THE LIMITED RIGHTS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT THAT ARE NEEDED TO RUN THE SERVICES. This Agreement does not grant Customer or End Users (i) any rights to the Intellectual Property Rights in the Services or (ii) any rights to use the Dropbox trademarks, logos, domain names, or other brand features. “Intellectual Property Rights” means current and future worldwide rights under patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark, moral rights, and other similar rights.

RESULT: This service seems to be trustworthy.

Google Drive

When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

Of course, this statement everyone accepts counts for every service Google provides as well (GMail, Picasa, Drive, …)

RESULT: SUCH SERVICE SUCKS!!! As I don’t need a big brother to watch over me.
