Alert: NG Gets Free License of Your Copyright
Many photographers dream of being published in National Geographic, so you may be tempted to enter NG’s “Your Shot” photo contest. When you do, however, the rules state that you give NG:
a royalty-free, worldwide, perpetual license to display, distribute and reproduce the Photograph, in whole or in part, in any medium now existing or subsequently developed for editorial purposes without further review or participation from you.
At least NG will have only editorial rights to your copyright, but readers of my blog know that can go a long way.
