Google claims ownership of all your content on your Drive, Microsoft stays hands off, dropbox dead.

Google claims ownership of all your content on your Drive, Microsoft stays hands off, dropbox dead.

I love my Dropbox , but Google Drive and Microsoft Sky Drive launched today with much flair.  They are both about half the price of Dropbox, but my love for Dropbox is the easy folder integration, I have to test if these new services are as easy. The big concern no one is talking about, is the fine print and this would make me run from Google and give Microsoft a bug hug (and my money)

Microsoft SkyDrive ToS: “Except for material that we license to you, we don’t claim ownership of the content you provide on the service. Your content remains your content. We also don’t control, verify, or endorse the content that you and others make available on the service.”
