This? Equals NOT. OK.
To be clear, these are the permissions it needs in order to do the things YOU might want to do with your stuff - like send it to other people, or make it public, or put it on YouTube, etc. But it’s not clear in the terms that Google itself should not be doing that without your permission, and it should be. Here is a better article on the situation.
Apologies if this is not new to some of you - I’m just discovering it and needed to share.

- gingerrsnapped said:I go to school for television-radio, and the school really encourages us not to post to youtube just for this reason. Especially music students. If they post content and google decides they want to use it without crediting the person. it’s legal. >.<
