Google Chrome: Google Chrome EULA Claims Ownership of Everything You Create on Chrome, From Blog Posts to Emails


So, are you enjoying the snappy, clean performance of Google Chrome since downloading yesterday? If so, you might want to take a closer peek at the end user license agreement you didn't pay any attention to when downloading and installing it. Because according to what you agreed to, Google owns everything you publish and create while using Chrome. Ah-whaaa?

  1. Entirely overblown (though thanks for paying attention!). No *owernship* is conveyed. What the user does is give Google full license to use the content that passes through Chrome. This legal wording is necessary for a remote, service-based product like Google's search services. Otherwise, Google would not be able to legally capture any content you enter while using their services and store them server-side.

    The wording is similar (if not identical) to what you'd find in Google Docs, Flickr, YouTube... I wouldn't be surprised if GMail as well...
