Google Drive will prevent you from sharing files that violate its ToS | PC Gamer

As our colleagues at TechRadar reported, Google has announced that it will lock any files in Drive identified as having broken the terms of service, preventing them from being shared with or viewed by other users. The initial owners of any problem files will not be locked out of their own uploads, and they will still be able to access flagged files.

In Google’s own words: “When a Google Drive file is identified as violating Google’s Terms of Service or program policies, it may be restricted. When it’s restricted, you may see a flag next to the filename, you won’t be able to share it, and your file will no longer be publicly accessible, even to people who have the link.”
