Sharing the Love AND Your Photos?

iLovePhotos is "free software for your Mac that helps you organize, share, and enjoy your photos based on the people who are in them." But the terms of service provide:

In order for Blue Lava to make the Service available to you, you hereby grant Blue Lava a royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide right and license which may be sublicensed or transferred, to use, display, distribute, reproduce, copy, make derivative works from, modify, adapt, transmit, translate, perform, publish and sell your Content in mediums or formats now known or later developed.

Blue Lava may work with third parties to provide users with the option to purchase DVDs, CDs, photo albums or photo books containing such users' content or other users' submitted Content. Blue Lava does not monitor such purchases or control the ultimate distribution or sharing of such Content by others.

Maybe that's a little bit more love than you want to share.

Thanks to Walter Rowe for providing this alert.
