Google Chrome: Big Brother Is Right, and IP bullies too

Today I saw a tweet that alerted me to the Google Chrome EULA.  I too just glossed over it and didn’t think a thing about it.  However, here is a post by an attorney who, and I quote, states: “Until Gooble scales this [EULA] back, I will NOT be using Chrome.”  Basically, in a nutshell, Google , without your consent or without paying you a dime, can use anything you post to the Internet using Chrome for whatever they wish.  Including the sale of the information to other companies, etc.  In addition, by accepting the EULA, you are indicating that you have the RIGHT to allow Google to do this.

This is the second big smack to Chrome.  The first was the humorous incognito browsing.  You can browse incognito, but we will still collect information about where you are going and doing for our advertisting purposes.  Big Brother is watching you.

Here is the full EULA Post

    Just an FYI, Google has updated the EULA supposedly removing all of their abilities to steal all IP that is sucked through their browser. I do buy the “we copied the EULA language from other products” though. I mean, I think Google is a bit too large to be copying legal documents from other companies. They knew EXACTLY what they were doing.
