[narrator] so linkedin takes

pretty much everything forever.

You'll find this kind

of language in google,

pinterest, facebook--

Pretty much anything

that people consider free.

Instagram is finding

that pictures are worth

Much more than

a thousand angry words,

After the company updated

its user agreement to say

It would have the right

to sell posted photos

Without compensation

for use in advertising.


and even if you are paying,

Companies have the ability

To make you accept

just about whatever they please.

In 2009, gestation,

Company in the u.K.,

Put some pretty sneaky

stuff their terms.

They didn't take mon,

or your firstborn child.

But for one day,

their terms stated:

By pcing an order

via th website,

You agree to grant us

a non-transferable

option to claim,

Now and forer more,

your immortal soul.

The contract was

only live for a day,

But gamestation happened

to rake in the lives of

7,000 immortal souls.

This was of course a joke.

However, it makes you wonder.

What if there were

more serious consequences

That might result from not

reading terms and conditions?

What if your phone came with

these long terms and conditions

That said, well, if you use

the phone the government can

wiretap you.

That would be insane.

But that's the kind of

world we're living in.

[narrator] a world where

the government can wiretap you

Because of terms

and conditions?

So if you look at

the iphone user agreement,

Wiretapping isn't mentioned.

But in at&t's privacy policy,

They say that they can use

data to investigate, prevent,

Or take action regarding

illegal activities.
