Why would you put ultra-sensitive information on google drive anyways? People make such a big deal about it but it really isn't an issue unless you are being stupid. I have data on my drives that could cost my company millions of dollars but I would never put them on cloud storage. I never put them on a machine connected to the internet unless I absolutely have to. We exchange hard copies on disks or USB drives.
The point is google ruining their reputation would cost them far more money than they could ever steal from you and they really don't care what laws you are breaking. Put it this way, it is actually a good thing for you if you are breaking the law because the government can't even access your stuff without serving google with a warrant and do you think google is going to let them go through all their data?
At the end of the day nothing negative comes out of this unless you are ultra paranoid.
Good point, I don't see why people care, it's just like facebook, they own all the stuff you post, but you don't see mark zuckerberg printing off your bikini photos and hanging them on his office walls to masturbate to, do you?
Don't put anything sensitive on the web, as for pictures of your dog, who cares if google "owns" it. That's what google drive is for, pics, music, etc. Not a text file of your company's visa number
