You are correct. Have a quick search for my posts - I've said a fair bit on the subject. It is also the reason I've decided to not really join in since the site went live. We were promised a re-write of the T & C's, the result being that Future must obtain the posters permission before using any image.
However in your mind (and mine) this has not been changed. I'll not go into the 5 clear specific things which must be fulfilled for a contract to be binding - but it is clearly set out within the T & C's that by posting a photo onto this site, the legal term of consideration has been met. This means Future has the right to use that photo in any way they wish - i.e. for their profit - and give the poster sweet....all.
I am still hoping that they will honour their promise of changing them - so I still lurk around the site - but its doubtful this will happen.
I'm sure a member of staff will be along to dispute this, suggesting that Future would always ask first - or that the T & C's do say Future must ask first - but my legal education and training clearly differs from their understandings.
