I wonder if a server error would be a valid excuse in court for any inevitable copyright issues. I look forward to actually reading the eula on this thing. I remember when public web forums were first created, many companies assumed, as a matter of course, that they would own the content created by their subscribers, and it was a rare board that didn't attempt to capitalize on their assumed transfer of copyright.
But the citizens of cyberspace voted with their feet, and now it's equally rare to see sites that don't explcitly tell you that you own your own content. Or am I wrong? Did I merely vote with my feet, and not the rest of the world? Are the big companies (AOL, etc) still demanding you transfer your copyright to them when you blog/post/whatever?
