Fujifilm Makes Ghoulish Copyright Grab!


Fujifilm, U.S.A., is sponsoring its “Picture Perfect Halloween Contest” again this year. Unfortunately, the Terms and Conditions include a link to the “Customer Image Release” that provides:

The Sponsor or its designees shall have complete ownership of the Image, including copyright interests, and User acknowledges that once the Image is submitted, User will have no interest or ownership in the Image or its copyright.

This blatant transfer of your copyright is enough to make one run screaming!

Kudos to Jenny Swanson for reading all of the terms and conditions before entering this contest!
