    Youtube

    I was reading youtubes Terms of Use and noticed this:

    However, by submitting the User Submissions to YouTube, you hereby grant YouTube a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display, and perform the User Submissions in connection with the YouTube Website and YouTube's (and its successor's) business, including without limitation for promoting and redistributing part or all of the YouTube Website (and derivative works thereof) in any media formats and through any media channels. You also hereby grant each user of the YouTube Website a non-exclusive license to access your User Submissions through the Website, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such User Submissions as permitted through the functionality of the Website and under these Terms of Service.


    Basically they can sell, advertise, distribute what you submit however they want and you just threw your rights out the window.

    lol, that's pretty cool. I'll be waiting for them to sell some teen's funny video blog to pepsi or someone for use in a commercial and then whoever it was in the video tries to sue.

    Duh?

    It's the same with AIM. Anything you say becomes property of AOL which is why we corporate folks are so concerned about it.
