Well, it does cost $2.50 per gigabyte so I'm not sure how that compares to online backup services. It's also a pretty manual process so convenience is low.
The most difficult aspect is that you will be using the service in a way that doesn't correspond to the intent of the service. I mostly mention this because it probably puts you at risk to having to strictly satisfy the requirement to have the rights to distribute the material you upload.
