Google's whole "don't be evil" goal seems to be disappearing bit by bit as time goes on. They should change it to "don't be evil unless the potential of a large sum of money is involved."

Just a big false alarm... even for legalese can tell that paragraph doesn't fit there in regards to the application.

Quote:
Update, Sept. 3rd 2008: Earlier today, Google changed section 11 of the EULA to read as follows:

Quote:
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.
I think that text is much better.
