You have the right to remain silent!

Foarte multi dintre noi au cont pe Facebook. Right...

Pana acum ceva vreme, in Terms of Service iti spunea ca, daca iti stergi contul, licenta pe care o avea Facebook asupra continutului pe care l-ai postat pe site expira. Si gata divortul.

Booon. Acum cateva zile a aparut o modificare foarte importanta, care se referea la pastrarea unor arhive ale continutului tau. Cu alte cuvinte, Facebook putea sa dispuna de el cum doreste, acum si pentru totdeauna, actual sau fost utilizator. Deci atentie ce lasi in urma, atentie ce poze pui, ce texte scrii....totul poate fi folosit impotriva ta. Bine, hai sa zicem, nu chiar atat de apocaliptic.

Asta e pasajul incriminat:

You may remove your User Content from the Site at any time. If you choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will automatically expire, however you acknowledge that the Company may retain archived copies of your User Content.

Si iata ce lasi in urma:

The following sections will survive any termination of your use of the Facebook Service: Prohibited Conduct, User Content, Your Privacy Practices, Gift Credits, Ownership; Proprietary Rights, Licenses, Submissions, User Disputes; Complaints, Indemnity, General Disclaimers, Limitation on Liability, Termination and Changes to the Facebook Service, Arbitration, Governing Law; Venue and Jurisdiction and Other.

Well, utilizatorii s-au sesizat, s-au revoltat, s-au plans si Facebook a revenit momentan la vechile reglementari. Au trimis un gornist care a strigat:

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.
