Has this problem been solved? (Reading all of the rules and regulations again is too time consuming, so I didn't bother.)
I copied this from the T&Cs
'' 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 will not publish your images in any other Future publications or those of its group companies without express prior permission. Future and its group companies will never sell your images and/or photographs without express prior permission, whereupon royalties will be discussed with you.''
I cannot see any problem - Accordingly I am uploading images sutable for display on screen incorporating a watermark © copyright detail. If Future or anyone else wish to obtain higher resolution pictures without watermarking, then I will obviously discuss and oblige accordingly.
I think this is a better option in protecting copyrighted / valued work; than putting higher resolution images online that can be easily copied and considered in public domain and there to abuse or steal.
