A very few people, like three or four. They probably should have read the Mechanical Turk user agreement, which says explicitly that work done by Workers is not their property, but the Requester's, period.

This is pretty much what Amazon's book review guidelines also say (and Amazon surely profits from "owning" thoughtful reviews), as well as other "user-generated content" sites. The simple fact is, unless you see a big "delete this" button next to the stuff you put on various websites, you probably don't own it once it appears there. For instance, who "owns" this comment I'm writing? I can't delete it once it appears.
