Submission + - What kind of content is acceptable in the cloud?

An anonymous reader writes: Amazon's censure of Wikileaks not only raises significant First Amendment issues, but also raises questions of what kind of content is and isn't acceptable in the cloud, as PC World discusses. Businesses migrating to the cloud need to think long and hard about this. From the article: "For example, law firms frequently have to deal with extremely unpleasant materials as part of their work. Could they store horrific images and videos on a cloud service? Could they store potentially libellous materials? Are cloud companies going to start making a distinction between storing materials that have a genuine business need (OK), and those that are stored solely for enjoyment (not OK)?"
