More and more, Conde Nast is growing their universe, and family of publications and online editions. Previous Conde Nast contracts are now being used in the CondeNet contracts. Here below is the CondeNet version, but it's essentially the same as the Conde Nast versions. In fact, the CondeNet version is essentially a drive-by rewrite of the Conde Nast edition, because of concepts like "Foreign Editions", which would be printed editions as well. These designators are OL1 and OL2, and I am making the educated guess that the "OL" designator, is short for "OnLine."
Recognize that in these contracts, you're not being compensated for your work appearing in online editions when the print-side commissioned you, and conversely, you're also not being compensated for your work that appears online when the online-side commissioned you. Yet, advertisers must pay if they wish to appear online and in the print editions, seperately.
There's a great deal wrong with both versions, and we'll go in an dissect each section.

Technical note: Since I don't want to bump every other post off the first few pages of the blog, I am posting this Introduction post with today's date, and I am posting the remaining comments, and conclusions with a date several weeks back - essentially so far back that you wouldn't be drilling in, page by page and see them. This allows for the other posts from previous days to remain on the front page. At some point, I will fix that and they all will be one after another. If you are getting this on RSS feed, my apologies since I know you will end up getting them all, despite the date adjustment.
