In reply to:

Dan Wagner: Here are a few contest terms you may want to carefully consider:

"By entering the Contest, entrants consent to our collection, use and disclosure of their personal information for these purposes and also to potentially contact entrants for MARKETING PURPOSES (caps are mine)."

Oh goody -- so the contest company can make money selling our info to other companies who will fill our email boxes with more junk.

And

"By submitting an Entry, each entrant grants to Sponsor a royalty- free, sublicenseable right to use, reproduce, transmit, modify (as to size, format and color correction, only), and display the Photo on Sponsor’s Web site(s) or Sponsor’s pages on social media web sites, such as Facebook or Twitter, for marketing and promotional purposes in connection with Sponsor and/or the Contest."

There are quite a few more items in the terms section that I find less tasty than okra. DPrev commission on this?

Anyone else besides me tired of the unending proliferation of contests?

Don't like the terms, but I disagree about okra!
