Another discussion of the problems with Google's new policy, from a somewhat different perspective:
http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2012/02/google_privacy_policy_the_missing_opt_out_isn_t_the_only_problem_.html

More google privacy issues: http://www.mercurynews.com/business/ci_19990444
"Google deliberately worked around something in Safari to make ads work in the way it wanted them to work, regardless of whether the user wanted that or not."

And finally, I checked
the wiki pages on google again. Surprise surprise There is still no mention of the 2012 privacy controversies.

Honestly, I find it hard to get worked up about that one. I think it sounds scarier than it is. While the law can twist anything to be what the lawyers want it to be, they're referring to things like sharing youTube videos and embedding them on pages. A blogger does not have to get my permission before embedding a video on his site that I have created and made public.

So, yes, this could also be used for Google making commercials and also using my video in the commercial without asking me ... or some other viral video. Or a picture on Picasa or a googleDoc. Or, yes, they could read aloud, on air, during a superbowl commercial that heart rending email I sent to my mother, although I don't know why they would want to do that. That seems kind of silly.

Since I retain all legal copyright to everything posted using their services and/or sent using their services.
