About Photobucket - and their terms of use :(

Now hands up: who of you did actually read the terms before uploading your pics to photobucket...? :/

:shock:
*makes note to never, ever use them for anything I post again*

I hardly use them because it's so easy to nick photos hosted on there, even when the album is private and it's less easy to change the image to say something amusing when someone steals from the location, but wow. On the one hand it makes sense for them, on the other hand that seems very...generous.

Photo Bucket = VERY scary

So if you upload your photos there, they belong to anyone on the planet, regardless of anything. :( BOOOOO!

Most video upload sites have similar policies, and many others besides I'm sure.. Usually they just say that you're giving the site permission to use your work however they choose, I didn't realise Photobucket also states OTHER USERS can do what they like..

facebook is the same way too.. and even if you delete your account, they still own the rights to your photos that you upload after your account is gone.

Beware of what you put on there ;)

Yeah, I remember there being a big thing about how FB had rights to photos of users and could use them to advertise and whatnot, but I thought they edited their terms because of the negative reaction that received?

To be clear, FB owns the rights, it doesn't say others can use them as they please (as far as I'm aware).

Myphotoalbum.com is also the same. Other users can print off ur pics if its a 'public album'. I'm sure I heard they can even use ur pics to put on the websites products like mugs, pillows etc butcher I'm not too sure..

I believe Facebook changed a few things around which does not entitle them to any rights to your images.

I think these photo hosting sites just have that to prevent them being sued in case someone steals images and hosts them, it would be impossible for them to operate otherwise. Enough to stop random lawsuits, not enough to clearly transfer copyrights, so no worries really.

I don't know how it would stand with this, but I remember hearing something a while ago about how even though you click to say you have read the T&C on websites because nobody actually does if there is anything UNREASONABLE in there, then contractually they have to prove that you have read it. So if somebody used your image in a defamatory way then it would be down to pb to prove that you were aware of their right to do so. (This would only apply in cases which have become legal battles)

What a bizarre policy though. I can understand them saying that you give them the rights (not saying i agree), but why then do they feel they need to give the rights to everyone else?
