In related news, today Copyfight has a post about AOL's latest terms of service under which AOL lays claim to all the intellectual property in its clients' posts. As bad as this is, it isn't particularly unusual. However, the language is so broad it seems to lay claim to all the IP you may have in your private IM communications as well. You better stop writing all those haikus to your lover lest they be published in The Best of AIM 2005. Yikes!
Oh, and there is an updated story in which AOL denies this was its intent. Yeah, right.
