And that's one reason why more and more people have made their trees private.

I will quibble on one point. Your stuff is still your stuff. Your research does not belong to Ancestry. But I would be shocked if the company did intervene in any meaningful way:

Content which has been contributed to public area of the Operations, Inc. sites by users remain the property of the submitter or the original creator and we are a licensed distributor of such content. Occasionally, a person may feel that content submitted by a user is their property or is covered by the copyright of someone other than the submitter. Please remember that we are the distributor of user supplied content and the submitter, not, Inc., is the one who has violated copyright if such a violation has occurred. However, we will respond to substantiated claims of violation. In such a case, the person who believes they have a claim under copyright should send a claim of copyright violation to:

David P. Farnsworth
Copyright Agent for Notice Operations, Inc.
360 W 4800 N
Provo, UT 84604



All the following must be included:

- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to be infringed, and the basis of the claim

- Identification of the material which is claimed to be infringing, including the URL

- Full contact information on the claimed copyright owner or other claimant, (who must have a license which is being infringed or other standing to make the claim.) This should include the name, address, telephone, fax and email information.

- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information sent is accurate and the complaining party is the owner or an authorized agent of the owner.

- A physical or electronic signature of the claiming party
