MS's employees in Ireland might be criminally liable in the EU if they transmit the data outside EU borders. They might really really like Microsoft, but to the point of being willing to go to prison for the company? I think not.

We could potentially end up in a situation where the main branch of MS screams at the EU branch from across the Atlantic and no one over here is willing to comply.

If you don't want your images to float, then don't use the figure environment. The whole point of figure, table and other floating environments is that they float. If you don't want it, just use \includegraphics. See also: TeX.SX: How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?

Define "best"

Is it best because a user making a legitimate parody or review is likely to get a strike on their account because the automated ContentID system cannot tell the difference between a straight copy and what ought to be fair use?

Is it best because hateful crazies can get your account closed with a flood of phony copyright complaints?
