This was in section 6.4 (ii)

If you actually bothered to read the part right before the part you decided to bold (selective reading much?), it excludes Reports and content of your communications. So Skype has the right to use your uploaded photos, messages, and videos that you upload to Skype. It does NOT say anything about the right to view your communications, including file transfers, video chats, and text chats.

Sounds scary until you read this part: " if, at any time you choose to upload or post User Submissions to the Skype Websites or through the Software (excluding Reports and excluding the content of your communications)" As I read it, it only applies to what you post to the Skype website. I'd be much more worried about which of your private communications Skype chooses to share with interested third parties.
