Google Plus: Read the Fine Print BEFORE You Sign Up

Google is the company that started out with a simple mission: don’t be evil. They meant it when started. They have grown to be one of the biggest companies on the planet. I am not so sure they remember their original mission. Their image search feature allows them to profit from other people’s work without compensation. Their TOS (terms of service) allows them license to images. (...) There’s lots of talk about Google+. It is Google’s answer to social networking. It will probably be successful because Google has their hooks into everything and everybody. (...) You need to be aware of what you are giving up if you decide to use Google+ or any other Google service when it comes to your photography. Please read the information contained at this link. http://www.google.com/accounts/TOS. Then, please carefully note these sections:
