  1. Seriously!? This is FUD!

    Apparently bad news sells better than good news, so people are making a big deal out of this so they have something bad to say about GDrive. If FUD is the best they can do then it’s a win for GDrive!!!

    This clause simply makes explicit the hosting provider’s limitation of liability while providing their service. Otherwise every scheister in the world would accuse Google of copyright violation whenever they cache your data or optimize it in some way.
