Correction: Free "indefinitely" until the service either goes under or is bought by another company or they decide to start charging a fee. (Though it starts at 15GB.) Under no circumstances is your data truly safe "indefinitely" while on a third party's servers. Websites get hacked. Copy had a nice backdoor that made client data viewable, discovered earlier this year (fortunately closed).
At least MS is still beholden to corporations (SkyDrive), but we store our data on local company-served clouds for a reason.
Indefinitely means undefined amount of time. Of course no online data is truly safe which is why I also have local backups. I'm not one of those crazy paranoid conspiracy theorists. My Android Nandroid ROM backups would be no good to anyone else anyway.
