Ah, thanks for the quote on Terms of Service or whatever that was..
In other words, according to that it seems perhaps possible (due to lawyer speak) your hard-worked-on content which you created with your blood, sweat, tears and money, suddenly becomes Sony's to do whatever they want with for free and in perpetuity and you waive your rights - just by agreeing to using Sony's software on your precious content ?
edit: it does say "for the purpose of providing the SERVICE" (but who really knows, it's lawyer talk) but then goes on to say "not to exercise any moral rights" without that constraint and then limits your rights in regard to other things. So who knows.
It does not have a good look nor feel. I still remember Sony installing rootkits on people's PCs to control what one could and could not do with their own equipment ... and have not forgiven them for that behaviour.
There is absolutely zero chance I will be using their software, and would consider strongly suggesting against using it.
