It makes no sense that Facebook would risk messing up a good thing by edging in on people's intellectual property. They had people's trust and then they go and risk losing it; not smart.

@coffee, I agree, and part of my post is that I am arguing that the letter of what they are doing is totally logical given the convoluted soup that is created in social spaces and have dysfunctional it would be to have to pull discrete ingredients from the soup.

That said, Facebook has created bad will by virtue of their size, success and perceived immaturity and arrogance. That fortunately is a fixable problem but they have a pattern of making material changes without making community as co-creator which is bad form. Here, they need to grow up, IMHO.
