A PCBeta member posted about his SkyDrive account was banned, he thought it was because he uploaded some "Tinkle" comics, as he received this MS notification:

Brief translation: Your SkyDrive account has violated MS code of conduct, you can contact us within 48 hours. and if you have good reasons, you are allowed to log in and delete the contents in question and re-open your account, otherwise we shall enforce account closure if such contions are not met.

...and when he tried to contact MS, this was what he got:

I tried to google "Tinkle" image, and found them to be some comics from the Indian author, seems nothing special about it, but the interesting thing was, if I goole "tinkle child abuse".....it seems there is a child protection organization in Singapore called "Tinkle Friend".

Of course it is impossible for MS to actually review the shear number of images uploaded to SkyDrive, and they used automated apps to check on "image DNA"; well, was it something went crazy and caused the closure of this poor guy's account, or maybe some other reason, hopefully we could find it out in time. :o

You can thank the paranoia around cloud storage to the American government and coming after Kim Dot Com/MegaUpload in the manner they did.

It's a worrying trend. How long until a version of Windows defaults to saving all your content in the cloud? Windows 8 already comes bundled with SkyDrive and the default login method is via a Microsoft account. Soon Microsoft will dictate what you are and aren't allowed to view. Good times.

Cloud storage should be considered private and corporations should have no right to access it, even if it is via automated scanners.

It probably only comes to their attention if someone reports the content

the default login method is via a Microsoft account.


It is not yet. You can always use a local account. Just look up for a link on the left corner part of the setup and you'll be good.

And then you will only be able to put HDD's externally.

It should be considered private unless it has been shared public, Microsoft are not the Police and should have no right to enforce their TOS that compromises privacy, unless they are under direction by a court order to do so, and have put in a reasonable amount of effort to fight the court orders if there are reasonable grounds to do so. As it stands now, you simply can not trust the Microsoft "Cloud".

Yes, he's right to say "default" becuase that's the default choice on installation, of course, it gives you another choice to use a local account like you said. :)

They physically own the servers that your content is being stored on, so they retain some liability if you upload illegal content onto their services (although they like to say otherwise in their terms of service, a court of law isn't inclined to have to agree), especially if they do nothing to prevent that. And "no right to enfore their ToS"? Really? It's the terms you agree too to use their service, they have every full right to enforce it if you agree too it. That's the whole point of having a ToS.
