.@SwitchingSocial@twitter.com covers how lets Google read & copy your files, pass them around, make derivative works, even publish them! 😟 Check the terms you agreed to...
Time for switching.social/ethical-alter

@nextcloud one of the reasons I stopped using Google Apps altogether.

I do, however, find it hilarious that they want to hold the rights to "publibly perform" a YoY earnings report. I hope they cast some good broadway actors!

@nextcloud Jesus fucking Christ! I have a chunk of a novel I'm writing stored on there. Thank you, I'm not using that shit ever again.

@nextcloud

Thank you time someone asks me why I'm not using google drive to write collaboratively anymore, I'm pointing them at this.

@nextcloud @RussSharek fun fact: The german GoogleDrive TOS explicitly clarifies that this is limited to just the case where you explicitly publish things using Google Drive. (see giga.de/downloads/google-drive)

Using your own filehosting can still be quite a wise move, depending on your needs and threat model. Just please don't spread FUD.

@JollyOrc

Good to know. I wonder of the American agreement has any such clarification?

@nextcloud

@RussSharek @nextcloud Google is only showing me the german terms right now, and I am too lazy to figure out how to get to the US one. :)
