Well it also states:
The following terms and conditions apply to all users who either
registered for AIM services or downloaded AIM updates or software on or
after February 5, 2004. AIM users who do not register for AIM services
or download AIM updates or software on or after February 5, 2004 and
are members of the Netscape Network will remain bound by Netscape's
terms and conditions. All other AIM users are bound by the aol.com
terms and conditions.
So a different TOS might apply...
It's not cool either way, though. Maybe it'll drum up some users for
Jabber? I'm certainly going to be using Jabber a lot more when Apple
supports it in a few months.
