This one seems relatively confusing to me… So by browsing to a copyrighted website with copyrighted pictures, I would give Google the right to reproduce, adapt, modify and publish that copyrighted content?
The source code of Chrome comes with a BSD license. This means that if you compile Chrome yourself, you don’t necessarily have to comply to the above EULA, should you not wish to 😉
