I just finished my post for IMBB#22 (hosted by Amy of "Cooking with Amy" I emailed her with the relevant details but I'm afraid I'm choking on the Technorati tag thing so haven't added it to my post. I looked at their Terms of Service and this portion gives me pause:
excerpt from www.technorati.com/about/tos.html
User acknowledges and agrees that if User uses any of the Services to contribute Content to the Site, Technorati is hereby granted a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right to fully exploit such Content (including all related intellectual property rights) and to allow others to do so.
I thought I had sent a post about this here but I can't seem to find it. So I will ask again. Is there anyone who understands legalese? Is this really saying that if I use the services to add a link to my site, I am granting Technorati "non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right to fully exploit" the content of the link I posted?? (It's not that what I write is all that fabulous; I just don't like the idea that someone else can just delve in, edit and use anything there.
Sorry to seem alarmist.
