Reuters has put forth it’s contract that applies to all submissions, and here’s a few tidbits, and my thoughts:
Ok, so, that’s fair.
“IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, DO NOT SUBMIT ANY MATERIAL TO REUTERS. “
Reuters may change these terms at any time by posting changes online. You must review these terms regularly to ensure you are aware of any changes made by Reuters.Say What? I gotta check this page regularly? That’s starting to sound like a job.
”grant to Reuters and its affiliates a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, transferable and non-revocable right and license to use, reproduce, display publicly, modify, adapt, edit, publish, translate, distribute, perform, play, create derivative works from, exercise and sub-license all associated and relevant rights (including intellectual property rights and publicity rights) with respect to your Material in any media whatsoever, whether now known, or developed in the future (the foregoing license is granted for the entire respective terms of the relevant rights);What part of lunacy does this fall into? It must be the “I just wanna see my camera phone picture on CNN because I think it’s just sooo cool” faction.
