My biggest complaint with these privacy policies is not the length or legalese, but the fact you cannot opt out. This especially annoys me when I pay for something.
I can opt out of pre-screened offers through my credit report, unsolicited phone calls, having my information sold on a mailing list when I subscribe to a magazine, newspaper or other periodical, but you cannot opt out of online services.
My take on it: if it is a free service, then you have to play by their rules as the price you pay for free. But if I am paying for it, then an opt out feature should be required. That, in itself, would solve a lot of privacy issues. Me buying your product does not give you the right to use my information for all eternity, especially if you are making money off of its use.
