KodakMoments.com photo rights grab
May 14, 2010

This morning I was reading the news from the official Kodak Blog and I was enchanted with the announcement of their new user-generated gallery:
http://1000words.kodak.com/post/?id=5539291146968644655

But the enthusiasm wore off in less than 30 seconds; it's another beautiful idea ruined by the lawyers. Here's an excerpt from the terms and conditions presented on the http://www.KODAKmoments.com gallery:

I hereby grant Kodak, and others with Kodak's consent, the right to edit, copy, distribute, publish, display and otherwise use the Contribution for purposes of the KODAK Moments program or for any advertising or publicity in any media, worldwide, without attribution, consideration or compensation to me, the photographer, my successors or assigns or any other individual or entity.

What's your opinion on this blatant rights-grab action?
