I tried to download some of my pictures from Photobucket...all download as 0 bytes, so they won't even let us take our pictures back

That is what I was afraid of, but I will let all of the pics go before I will pay them 400 a year.

I have most, but not all, here on my home computer. Some are straight from the web so I don't own them anyway. It's PB's site so they do have a legal right to do this cowardly thing to everyone. I hope it puts them into bankruptcy however. :twisted:

There's probably "fine print" on all usage agreements at free computer software sights. I remember reading the Google SketchUp fine print. It stating that using their software gave them intellectual property ownership to anything you created. I will bet similar fine print exists for all data storage and picture sharing websites. They're not legally holding your pictures for random if technically they own them. I've not read the agreement, I'm just guessing. But if I were a gambling man....

I figure you are precisely right. It's still ransom to demand money and hold pictures that they did not create even if it's in their legal capacity to do so. But it explains the sudden nature of their switch...had they given prior notice billions of stored pics would have flown the coop overnight, that would have strained their bandwidth for sure. :twisted:
