Passport Terms Revised

CNet News is reporting that Microsoft has revised its terms of use for its Passport service after the 'Net erupted in controversy over it. This article links to the original terms as well. They made the term "draconian" seem almost totally obscure. M$ said the terms were "old." Old or not, they were horrendous even by M$'s standards. Thanks Linux Today.

The Master comments: I was going to vent about this yesterday, but I decided to hold my tongue. Thankfully Microsoft removed the excuse. I do wish lawyers would be more careful about how they protect their clients rights. Half the time it seems like these legal contracts pretty much give a visitors rights to their kids for visiting a webpage. Good grief.
