Thanks to the folks who have gone public with their new layouts. I appreciate it.
My first impression is that Smug has some cleanup work to do. I see a lot of sloppy stuff in the layouts -- head that don't fit, icons that bleed over into images and such.
And the wild inconsistency in the Copyright Notices has me concerned. I sent this email to the Copyright folks:
Looking at new layouts other SmugMug customers are using, I do not see consistency in Copyright notices. Some have no notices on pages ("Photo Sharing by SmugMug" and nothing else), others "Copyright 2013 SmugMug, Inc."
On my current (not-converted) pages, it says "Portions Copyright 2013 SmugMug, Inc."
The terms of service I've tried to read don't make it clear to me that I retain copyright of my images, although the notice on my current page seems to bow to that idea.
Has there been a change in the terms? Does such a change become effective with conversion to the new layouts?
I'll post any response I get here!
