Alert: Photo Contest Grabs Your Copyright

No one likes to read the small print, but it can be important. Check the rules of this photo contest that state:

The participant . . . shall accept that by submitting the images he/she waives all claim to copyright and any consequential rights, including moral rights.


This statement tranfers your copyright just by submitting your photo, regardless of whether you win a prize.

Thanks to John Williams for submitting this alert.
