Interesting question. Here is what I know about the status of intellectual property on the internet at the moment. Basically it is illegalish - It's a definite grey area. One of the things it depends on is who actually owns the copyright. This is a very difficult area since in both Google and Yahoo supported blogs or forums the contents are claimed by the companies. It's in the fine print. Even e-mails and photos transmitted via Google.  Google clearly (but buried in very fine print) claims all copyright to anything that passes through any of their services.

This is absolutely 100% incorrect. It's one of those conspiracy-theory rumors people like to start, and in the 12 years since that comment, you'd have heard MANY big stinks about it--very public--by this time if there was even an ounce of truth in that claim.
