Revised TOS Gives Facebook Perpetual Rights to User Content

This month Facebook revised its Terms of Use, a document it is legally permitted to update at any time without informing users. Users demonstrate tacit acceptance of the Terms by continuous use of the site. The revision grants Facebook complete, perpetual ownership of content uploaded or added to Facebook — including the rights to sublicense said content. 

A Facebook group, People Against the new Terms of Service (TOS), has been launched in protest of the February 4 revision. As of this writing, members number close to 600.
