Why I don’t trust Facebook

From Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, which all Facebook users must agree with to use the service, as well as Facebook’s Privacy Policy:

 

“For content that is covered by intellectual property rights (…) you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook.”

 

People, when acting generous towards each other, sometimes say: “What’s mine is yours.” Facebook demands this of it’s users. I don’t like people who behave this way towards me. I’m not a fan of companies who do it either.
