Being gamers, we rarely read the ToS of our softwares... Who am I kidding? We NEVER read the ToS of our software! However, there is one ToS that you internet users, might be interested in reading.
Google's new browser Chrome, has a ToS that contains some nasty specifications that will probably scare any artist/designer reading this:
"1. Content license from you

Chrome is definitely faster than Firefox, but are you ready to let go anything you put on the internet? Even this blog i'm writing right now could be their possesion with this ToS.
