Microsoft’s new Terms of Service allows them to use your content and forbids you from suing them!

Microsoft notified users of its services ( Hotmail, MSN and Office.com) about changes to the Microsoft Services Agreement.

the 2 main point of these updated TOS are:

1- Microsoft can now share your content between it’s online services (in previous TOS it was: “solely to the extent necessary to provide the service”) Microsoft has now like Google a clause allowing data sharing across its various products.

2- You no longer have a right to sue Microsoft in court (like Paypal and other companies this clause requires users to resolve any disputes with the company by binding arbitration.  and thus you give up your right to sue Microsoft in court. )
