Who owns your files on Google Drive? | Internet & Media - CNET News
Quote:
A quick analysis of Google's terms of service shows how the search company owns the files you upload the minute they are submitted, and can in effect do anything it wants to your files -- and that's final. But there is a small catch. ......

The last sentence makes all the difference. While these rights are limited to essentially making Google Drive better and to develop new services run by Google, the scope is not defined and could extend far further than one would expect.
Simply put: there's no definitive boundary that keeps Google from using what it likes from what you upload to its service.......

The fact is, according to its terms, Google may own any code or product you ultimately upload to its new Google Drive service, whether you realise it or not.
