Their content will be kept. People who stop paying can still log in the site, browse the library, but can't upload or download anything.

Maybe. It all depends on who many people need this. If a lot of people who would like to pay for this, then yes!

Between those and the ability to convert .cbz to .pdf, you could find yourselves storing dozens to hundreds of gb of scans for high-capacity users.

Or is there a cap on individual book size? (You could still find yourself flooded with large sets of 5mb PDFs, but that's less likely. However, if you don't accept scanned-image PDFs, which regularly run 12-40mb, that should be stated somewhere that people can see it before they sign up. Some epubs are 12mb, if they're heavy with pictures or code.)
We do have a limit on file size: 50 MB. We accept scanned-image PDFs.

No pre-payments required to have a 14-day trial. If the user decides not to pay, all his or her content will be kept. But you are right, we need a TOS. We will make one.

Thank you, I really like your questions
