+ - Is your data on the cloud really private? Few think not.->

TheHawke writes "If you upload a copy of a legally bought DVD to your cloud drive, could your provider label it as a copyright violation? What about a honeymoon photo set that includes one too many bikini shots — could an overzealous automated porn filter delete your pictures by mistake?

Some popular cloud storage providers sweep accounts looking for illegal data. Right now, the focus is on hunting for child pornography, but their terms of service allow for other kinds of files to be considered non grata as well."
