Alert: Bissell Needs to Clean Up Its Act

By entering Bissell's photo contest, you:

assign to Sponsor all right, title, and interest in your entry in any and all media whether now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, anywhere in the world, with the right to make any and all uses thereof, including, without limitation, for purposes of advertising or trade. The rights granted under this paragraph shall extend to all entries and all other submitted materials related to the promotion, including those submitted by non-winners and winners. . . . The rights granted under this paragraph shall extend to Sponsor and its affiliated companies with respect to all entrants in the Contest, including non-winners and winners.
(From Section 7 - emphasis added.)

So even if you don't win, you give Bissell your copyright. That sucks.

Thanks to Steve J. Brooks for submitting this alert.
