Facebook Terms & Conditions - Can they copy your game??

Hi all,

I am in the middle of setting up a FB page for my new app. I'm just going through the terms and conditions. Has anyone actually read the FB terms and conditions before? I've attached a screenshot of one of the terms.

"9. We can create apps or products that offer features and services similar to your app."

Has anyone else noticed this?

I don't think FB would ever bother copying one of MY apps but others might be affected.

They have that right anyway, so I guess they are just making it clear.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.
