Facebook terms of service- they can do anything they want with your info

I wasn't sure if anyone posted this already but my friend just sent it to me an hour ago. It talks about the new terms of service agreement... Basically the new terms states that facebook own everything on it.. Now if we thought of facebook as a place... and our profiles as space... then that's like saying that we have to leave all our belongings in the space because we don't own it. The article has the responses from facebook that claim it is a protective measure.

It is just frightening to imagine that even if i close my account my information will not be closed along with it... also there is a fact that many people don't know what they are getting themselves into by agreeing to the terms of service.

but with all these contracts online.. what does this show about our "privacy" online?

I saw your/this post a few days back and then yesterday i got a message (probably everyone did) on my homepage:

"Over the past few days, we have received a lot of feedback about the new terms we posted two weeks ago. Because of this response, we have decided to return to our previous Terms of Use while we resolve the issues that people have raised. For more information, visit the Facebook Blog.

If you want to share your thoughts on what should be in the new terms, check out our group Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities."

But even before this: for a while there was a myth/theory about what Facebook would use your info for. Most people figuring that they might sell it. There are still some groups about this out there.
Also, whenever friends have tried to deactivate their accounts, the account isn't actually deleted, just more or less hidden from everyone. But the info is still there if you should ever decide to come back. This person talks about it: http://www.webomatica.com/wordpress/2008/04/13/to-really-quit-facebook-know-the-difference-between-deactivate-and-delete/

It gets a little conspiracy theory, but even if not true, people believe it and seems feasible. After all, the creator(s) are just other people out on the internets. We've just chosen to trust them for some reason.
