I love it, make us tick our agreement, because if we do not we can not sign in & reply to a question.
Hear me loud and clear, THERE ARE LIMITED CHANGES! Mainly the new opening paragraph which seems to suggest that you don't need to bother reading further as we've sorted it out and all's well with the world!
However if you do scroll down you will find the same, slightly altered, paragraph allowing Future to use your uploaded photos for what ever purpose they so wish, if they can claim that it's to advertise the website, without asking you explicitly (as you have ticked your agreement, and given consent by uploading in the first place). I'd go further to suggest that if you have your own web site and link to a photo from it into this forum, you are liable to have granted the same permission (I can come up with valid arguments on both sides of this). Should they use it for anyother reason, they will discuss a payment with you first, sorry "under take" to discuss it first - if they were to use it without asking first you will have the same problem you have on other sites, actually realising that your photo has been stolen and is being used for another reason. So the offending paragraph:
With respect to Content you upload, post or otherwise transmit to the Website that consists of
images and photographs, you grant Future and its group companies a non-exclusive, royalty free,
perpetual, world-wide licence to use, modify, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and
distribute such Content: (i) on and through the Website and Website Service, including associated
newsletters; and (ii) to promote the Website. Future undertakes not to publish your images in any
other Future publications or those of its group companies without seeking your permission first.
Future and its group companies will never sell your images and/or photographs without express
prior permission, whereupon royalties will be discussed with you.
Please note that I'm on my iPhone, so if this is not making sense I will edit it on the computer at a later date, but hopefully it says what I want it to say... if your photo is any cop... well it's upto you!
EDITED to clear a few bits up.
