Assume anything uploaded to any website or used on their "free" software is made their property. This is not unusual in TOS and it's just being made an issue because it's Russian. If its free, how the hell do you think they make money? Image manipulation software should always be paid for, professional stuff if you don't want to lose rights to the images or suffer other TOS related issues. Nothing is free. Always question the business model and revenue streams.

So Russian = Bad. I wonder how that would go if they replaced Russian with one of the middle East countries.

people waving a camera in their face 24/7 is up to themselves. People gotta stop pushing responsibility for their own ignorance on the state. Start waking up to see YOU are the problem. When you bought the phone, you signed up for this.

I’m more scared of the “Faceback App” that Will Ferrell invented. You know, the app where they can figure out what your face looks like by taking a picture of the back of your head!?! It’s gonna be big.

The creators of your phone can acces whatever they want on your phone at any given time. I knew this before buying one. Using common sense, the first thing I did was sand the phone case in front of the face cam. It has never caused me concern.
