[Internet] MSN Spaces and its content ownership

Microsoft/MSN now also has its own blog service. I tried it and let's just say I won't switch over anytime soon.

I didn't bother to read the service agreement when I registered for the free service, but someone sure did:

"For materials you post or otherwise provide to Microsoft related to the MSN Web Sites (a 'Submission'), you grant Microsoft permission to (1) use, copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, modify, translate and reformat your Submission, each in connection with the MSN Web Sites, and (2) sublicense these rights, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Microsoft will not pay you for your Submission."
