  •  In terms of illegal content, yes (0+ / 0-)

    But not in terms of the ability to remove content at their discretion for any reason. I'd rather not see that become the standard practice, maybe we can agree on that?

    •  It's already a standard structure (0+ / 0-)

      There's only one other service that's similar, and that's iTunes, which basically says the same thing. They won't come in and remove something you've put on the device, but if it's something you got from their service and it's deemed that it shouldn't be there for whatever reason, they're going to yank it.

      As I pointed out elsewhere the penalties for illegally distributing copyrighted material are quite steep and companies aren't going to risk it.
