Zootoo Takes License of Your Content for All Purposes

Zootoo is a website with the mission that "every click helps a pet and every pet lover has a voice. Zootoo embraces all animals and the people who care for them every day."

Unfortunately, Zootoo also embraces Terms of Service that take:

a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable right and license to use, re-use, copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, host, store, cache, archive, index, categorize, comment on, broadcast, stream, translate, publicly perform, publicly display, exhibit, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute, re-distribute, publish, transmit and disseminate and/or incorporate or otherwise exploit such Submitted Content in, with, into or through any form, medium or technology (whether now known or hereinafter developed) without compensation to you, without obtaining your permission or providing attribution, and for any and all purposes including, without limitation, news, advertising, promotional, marketing, publicity, trade or commercial purposes.

That's enough to make a dog whimper!

Thanks to George W. Moore for submitting this alert.
