It is in the "Terms of use" link at the very bottom of the page. This language was partially fixed on the old site but seems to have reappeared in this unacceptable form.

Yes, I believe the main asset of TE is the "image bank" (more than 1,000,000 photos), and not the potential for advertising revenues (just about 400 people posting every day these days; roughly the same visitors every day).

If I was the manager of Internet Brands I would obviously be exploring possible ways to take advantage of the "image bank", after all that company bought the site and they have to make a return on their investment.

By the way, in just 3 months the shares of Internet Brands are up by almost 50%. Maybe we should buy some?

Here is a link to the previous thread on the subject, which lead to IB adjusting the TOU.

perhaps Brent Conver, Justines successor, could have this fixed again and also address the remaining question which Justine ignored

The link for the Terms of Use with the statement "You also grant us global nonexclusive adaptation and resale rights over any content and material submitted to the Site." is at the very bottom of every TE page, the last link we see there. The same text is back to the old version too.

T Jean-Christophe for pointing this out to us. Personally I've decided not to post another photo on TE until we get some clear information regarding this point from Internet Brands (if they care to comment). I may also consider deleting my whole gallery if this situation is confirmed.

In the meantime, I'll be posting on Flickr, where I've reconnected with many TE members who have also made the move.

Ma décision sera prise en fonction de la réponse des administrateurs.
J'ai déjà un compte sur Flickr.

Hi All
I just got this reply from Brent Conver

"Any change to the tos was unintended and we will revert on Monday.

Sent from my iPhone"

This is copied from the other thread on the same issue.

I think it's still very early in the States (here half afternoon), I found it in the long "tos" under "Intellectual Property"...
