NOTE** Make sure to read the Terms of Service for this deal, as it is in conjunction with CBS. I pulled this from the CBSi terms of service. Basically, anything you put up there, they can use however they like:

6. User Submissions

Some of the Services may allow you to submit or transmit audio, video, text, or other materials (collectively, "User Submissions") to or through the Services. When you provide User Submissions, you grant to CBS Interactive, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully sublicenseable license to use, distribute, edit, display, archive, publish, sublicense, perform, reproduce, make available, transmit, broadcast, sell, translate, and create derivative works of those User Submissions, and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information where part of a User Submission, in any form, media, software, or technology of any kind now known or developed in the future, including, without limitation, for developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in your User Submissions.

We respect your ownership of User Submissions. If you owned a User Submission before providing it to us, you will continue owning it after providing it to us, subject to any rights granted in the Terms and any access granted to others. If you delete a User Submission from the Services, our general license to that User Submission will end after a reasonable period of time required for the deletion to take full effect. However, the User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available. If your User Submission is shared with third parties, those third parties may have retained copies of your User Submissions. In addition, if we made use of your User Submission before you deleted it, we will continue to have the right to make, duplicate, redistribute, and sublicense those pre-existing uses, even after you delete the User Submission. Terminating your account on a Service will not automatically delete your User Submissions.

I think they addressed this in the comments or on their FB or somewhere. I don't think CBS has anything to do with it once you have an account.

Thanks YLSF - if you can find the link where it states that they don'r, would be grateful. I've been trying to find more info on it, but no luck. I checked their FB page and no dice there, on in the thread here.

Go to the cnet link in the first post... read the comments there.

These 2 comments in particular:

Why is CBS and affiliates mentioned and have to agree to their terms of service. I don't really agree with them being able to use my material (music) without express permission from myself since I am the copyright holder of anything I create. But 20GB free will allow me to hopefully share with my partner of the musical project that I am getting off the ground once again....

@darkenedsoul Not to worry: your material is your own and CBS has no access or right to it. When you agree to the Ts&Cs from CBS, that is only related to your CNET Member account, not your Pogoplug Cloud. These two accounts are entirely separate.

I opened a new account and showed 20 GB yesterday. I log in today and see only 5 GB.

Any one else having this problem?

I believe Pogoplug is known for changing policies on their devices without informing users. So the 20 GB was probably a gimmick to get more signups.

New accounts only.

No file size limit.
Strange they say no file size limit, yet when you mount the pogoplug drive to appear as a local drive, it has a fat32 file system. And we all know fat32 has a 4gb limit. That imo sucks bigtime! I dont think i was able to use the format tool for that drive either.

I can confirm this. Asked about increasing my storage from 10gb to 20gb, got a return email the next day and boom, 10gb extra storage in my account. Thanks OP!
+1, Confirmed upgrade to 20 GB for existing. Only takes a day or so.

You don't have to upload files through the pogoplug devices. You can upload through a computer
get what is cheap, not what you need :lol:

Yea, I was thinking about that method, but how would that 4+GB file show up in the mounted fat32 drive? Would be weird seeing a 8GB file "appear" in a fat32 file system.
