Lightbulb AIM users, take note.

I don't use AIM myself but found this rather interesting, I wonder if other IM's might follow AOL's lead?

AOL's Terms of Service Update for AIM Raises Eyebrows.

I recommend GAIM, I have been using it for a few months and I love it.

Um... I am almost certain they all run through the same server(s)?

I read through the TOS, but didn't see that particular phrase. Where did they find it on the TOS?

Its under the "Content You Post" section in the TOS. Terencentanio makes a good point about GAIM, Trillian etc running through the same server(s). Those are just different front ends to the same network, your still bound by AOL's TOS.
