Alert: Oosah Gives and Oosah Takes Away

Oosah provides a "free" terabyte of storage to manage music, photos, and websites. Unfortunately, under the Terms and Conditions, Oosah takes a "free" license of your content at the same time.

9. Rules Governing Posting Content on Oosah

c. Ownership of Content: You retain all ownership rights in your Content. However, by posting Content to Oosah, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Oosah (and its successors) an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, assignable, royalty free, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, distribute and to prepare derivative works of such Content in connection with the Site and any current and future services offered by Oosah, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing.
Emphasis added.

While Oosah needs a license to perform its services, this license goes too far.

Thanks to Gregg Wood for submitting this alert.
