Microsoft recently launched MSN Spaces, a “free” blog service. But the legal eagles in Redmond have obviously been working overtime.
If you are ever tempted to use their service, you may want to read over this part of the policy before signing on the dotted line:
“For materials you post or otherwise provide to Microsoft related to the MSN Web Sites (a “Submission”), you grant Microsoft permission to (1) use, copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, modify, translate and reformat your Submission, each in connection with the MSN Web Sites, and (2) sublicense these rights, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Microsoft will not pay you for your Submission.”
