Boing-Boing, the world's greatest Directory of Wonderful Things, is keeping tabs on Microsoft's free hosted blogging platform,
Reader Paul Pellerito says, "MSN Spaces User asciident notes that at the bottom of every MSN Space is (c)2004 Microsoft Corporation. And according to their terms of use:
For materials you post or otherwise provide to Microsoft related to the MSN Web Sites (a "Submission"), you grant Microsoft permission to (1) use, copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, modify, translate and reformat your Submission, each in connection with the MSN Web Sites, and (2) sublicense these rights, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Microsoft will not pay you for your Submission."
So if your goal is to produce intellectual property for a multi-billion dollar, multi-national corporation, and not get paid for it, I highly recommend MSN Spaces.

UPDATE: Boing-Boing examines MSN Spaces auto-censor in a post featuring "World of Poop," "Corporate Prostitute Chronicles," and "Tits for Tats."
