Someone I know plans to register with but they were concered that judging from the terms and coditions - UKreg seem to "own" the content on the site. Do these terms read as reasonable or common for a service agreement for hosting purposes?

Wading through the legalese, it would appear to refer simply to their handling of the domain name (which is, after all, just leased by you) and not to any of your own content, data or other IP relating to your use of any webhosting service from whatever provider (that being a seperate entity from domain registration.) Should be fine in other words.
