Yet another Rights Grab.
Submission Guidelines and Official Rules:(http://prophoto.microsoft.avitivacorp.com/Site.aspx?cfn=Submission_guidelines_and_official_rules.html)
The Reality for “Future Pro Photographers”:
5. ENTRIES PROPERTY OF SPONSOR.
All Entries become the property of Sponsor and Administrators and will not be returned. By submitting your Entry, you grant Sponsor and Administrators an irrevocable royalty-free, worldwide right, in all media (now known or later developed) to use, publish, alter or otherwise exploit your Entry. You hereby forever release the Sponsor and Administrators from any and all claims you might have in connection with their use and exhibit of your Entry as set forth above. You also agree to sign any necessary documentation to effectuate that license and release. If you do not want to grant Sponsor and Administrators the foregoing, please do not enter the Contest. Sponsor and Administrators are not obligated to use the Entry, even if it has been selected as a Winning entry.
This is becoming all too common. Yet another reason why we all must add our names here: FIGHT THE NEW BILL SCREWING YOUR COPYRIGHT
Perhaps this is a good time to set an example for the “Future Pro Photographer”…before this becomes the End of All Pro Photographer(s).
