All Your Photos Are Belong To Us to Sell

by horngyih

Basically it says, ‘All Your Photos Are Belong To Us to Sell’, but if anything goes wrong in the use of the photos – you’re at fault because you told us you own the photo. And no, you don’t get a share of the profits we make selling your photos. And kiddies this applies to you because you said mommy and daddy says it’s ok.

A stroke of genius legal jargon. LOL, I’m glad I’m not a —– user. 😀
