Terms of Service; Didn't Read

I came across this excellent project via Helen Wybrants: Terms of Service; Didn’t Read. ToS;DR provides an at-a-glance overview of the conditions and permissions attached to some of the most popular TOS agreements (I am sure I am not the only one who clicks the ‘agree’ button without thinking most of the time :))

The class ratings, icons and colour-coding system flag some serious concerns regarding user data and privacy, some of which have no doubt been overlooked by many when registering. These include the remarkably prevalent ‘No right to leave the service’ condition and Twitpic's right to take credit for your content.
