Just dont get too excited about Google Drive. Did you read their License? Of course you are not.

It says the following:

our Content in our Services: When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide licence to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes that we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.
The rights that you grant in this licence are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This licence continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing that you have added to Google Maps).”
While every one else says “Your content in our services, Google says “Our content in our services” Buddy watch it…

I love Micorsoft – Sky drive not only for they offering 25GB of storage but their Terms and conditions are so nice:

“Your Content: Except for material that we license to you, we don’t claim ownership of the content you provide on the service. Your content remains your content. We also don’t control, verify, or endorse the content that you and others make available on the service.”

Thanks to:
