The Cloud Contracts paper - which I started researching before Christmas, and which has been bouncing back and forth in various drafts between myself, Christopher and Ian since May - is now finally done, released and online:

Contracts for Clouds: Comparison and Analysis of the Terms and Conditions of Cloud Computing Services, Simon Bradshaw, Christopher Millard and Ian Walden, 1 September 2010.

After some discussion we didn't end up using any of the titles kindly suggested by my friends, but I will try and use some of those ideas for the shorter news-article version of the paper I'm now working on, and which SCL might be interested in.

Yes, it's another Hitler Downfall Parody.

But an absolutely inspired one, especially for my line of work. Mein F├╝hrer, you should have read the disclaimer of liability section of the Terms of Service!

My thanks to Pangloss for bringing this to my attention. I'll pass it on at work, in response to this video which was pointed out to us by one of our contacts at, um, a Large Software Company that may not be collectively fond of Google...

From ZDNet: Cloud providers shrug off liability for security. Ego-boosting bit starts about half-way down.

Actually, I would say on the basis of my research that providers less 'shrug it off' than 'deny it forcefully and repeatedly', but this may change as the market matures - there are already providers such as Salesforce.com that make a virtue out of maintaining good business relationships with their customers.
