As Harry says, security through obscurity is rarely a good idea. In this particular case, anyone that has the link could publish it or make it available. Or someone with access to their machine (not necessarily legitimate access) could make it available.

There's a saying about the chance of a secret being revealed being the square of the number of people that know it. The more people you give the link to, the more likely it is to end up with someone you didn't intend to have it.

If you use any of the services in the chart you cite, there are no teams with access to "your stuff." All of those services encrypt "your stuff", now if you declare items to be shared publicly then anyone could have access.

How is it sneaky to offer you a 5GB account for free, then share the pricing on other paid plans?

Look around and you can find this info. If you check out the video casts (also available as audio podcasts and transcibed text) of Security Now episodes 349 and 350 Steve Gibson goes over most Cloud storage plans, their security and their costs in detail.

In truth you don't fully understand what you're talking about. Half of the items in the chart are file syncing and the other are backup solutions. You can abuse any service but none of the services in the chart have their primary usage as file sharing.

I agree Dropbox was in the right.

The case cited talked about receiving a DMCA notice, Dropbox doesn't have the right to create a notice since they don't own the works. This means that Dropbox received a DMCA take down notice and simply complied.

But it is obvious you DO and I shall leave it at that.
