Odeo being sold … what about the content?

Obvious Corp is is selling Odeo.

What worries me is whether or not audio I’ve recorded there will survive the transition. Like my wife’s grandfather’s last phone message. Like my my daughter’s thoughts on the Narnia move.

Ev says they’re selling it lock, stock, and barrel:

To clarify, what we’re talking about is selling odeo.com and studio.odeo.com, including all code, the domain, brand, database of three million MP3s, etc. Not a company, but a site and platform that could be ramped up to something much bigger.

… but will there be some kind of clause protecting existing recorded audio? I sure hope so. Any company buying it would be very foolish to immediately anger the existing user community by distrupting access, but you never know.
