MS will take down your content if another user complains!

Microsoft Services Agreement, Section 3.7:

Can Microsoft remove my Content from the Services? Yes. Microsoft will remove, limit distribution of, or disable access to your Content if we determine it’s in violation of this Agreement, we receive a complaint from another user, we receive a notice of intellectual property infringement, or other legal instruction for removal. We may also block delivery of a communication (like email or instant message) to or from the Services as part of our effort to protect the Services or our customers, or otherwise enforce the terms of this Agreement.

This states that Microsoft will, not not just can, remove your content if someone else complains. Forget about Facebook’s lax account takedown rules, MS takes the prize for ridiculous takedown rules. So if you share something on OneDrive, and I don’t like it, all I have to do is complain and they will take it down.

I have contacted Microsoft’s Privacy Questions program about this, and will update the post with their response.
