Yahoo Angers GeoCities' Users
from the give-away-your-rights dept
Yahoo! is learning first hand that the free homepage business might not be as easy as they originally thought. Apparently, they got some bad advice from their legal counsel and decided to change the user contract. Of course, the big change is that all the material people post to GeoCities is now the property of Yahoo!. Obviously, plenty of folks have a problem with that. Yahoo! is usually pretty good about these things, so it wouldn't surprise me if they back down quickly.
