Newspaper Gets Rights Beyond Sharing Your Vacation Photos

The Atlanta Journal Constitution wants to publish your vacation "getaway" photos. While it's great to share with others your fun adventures, when submitting your photo to the AJC, the rules provide that:

[Y]ou agree that such material is provided to us on a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, unlimited, worldwide, transferable, non-exclusive basis, and that we (including our partners, agents, affiliates and service providers . . . may reproduce, modify, archive, publish, display and otherwise distribute such material as we see fit in any medium now known or hereafter developed, in any manner we see fit (for example, online or offline derivative works) and for any purpose . . . without the requirement of providing you any form of compensation.

This may be something that causes you to want to "getaway!"

Thanks to Ed Selby for submitting this alert.
