Except, just like the US canon gateway library thing they did... they got me interested right up until this...

5.2 When you upload or submit any content to our Services, you grant Canon (and those we work with) a non-exclusive, worldwide right and licence to freely use, host, store, reproduce, publish, modify, create derivative works (for example, versions of your content created to ensure your content works better with our Services) and edit your content solely for the purposes of providing you with the Services. The rights that you grant in this licence shall be free of charge, perpetual and capable of sub-licence. We may exercise all rights in the content in all jurisdictions to the full extent for the full period for which any such rights exist. This licence may continue even when you stop using our Services but may be revoked when you delete content or your account unless such content has been shared with others who have not deleted it.

Canon for US had something like this where you can make slideshows and such with your pictures... but it says once you make a slideshow with their services, they are granted rights to republish, modify, etc...  I love canon cameras but dont love them that much...
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Thanks.
Even with Flickr, you own and retain rights to your work.
I would not touch the Canon service after reading that.
I can just imagine some user capturing a valuable image of a big news event that might sell to news services for thousands of dollars and have Canon tell him "Sorry, it belongs to us!"

Great photos can be blurry or sharp, and the news worthy ones are often taken by amateurs who happen to be in the right place at the right time.  Their impulse is to share a photo by posting it immediately, not realizing its worth a lot of money.  If you post it on Flickr, as long as you have your copyright attributes set, you are covered.  Canon though wants you to turn over the rights to them.

Except when they have "...solely for the purposes of providing you with the Services.", to me that sounds basically like them playing lawyer CYA so that users who use the service, upload their photos to it, can't turn around and sue them claiming copyright infringement.

Although the part with "...unless such content has been shared with others who have not deleted it..." makes me question it a little bit, because that'd mean if I share it, and someone keeps a reference to it, and I decided I want to delete it, it might still be 'out there'.

If it does indeed turn out to be like US canon gateway library in that regard then it is unacceptable, I may join just to make that point. These things can be changed by pressure I remember the furore when Google Chrome was first released.

Yes. They can't do *anything* with the photo if it's for a purpose other than the image management service, i.e. they or a 3rd party cannot sell or use your photo for anything that's not *solely* related to providing *you* with the service. They can't even use your images to publicise their image management service.

Hi,
Like to run this passed all you folks, there is of course a lot more than this but I would appreciate your take on this....

5 Your content

5.1 You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights you own in any content you upload or submit to the Services, including the Copyright.

5.2 When you upload or submit any content to our Services, you grant Canon (and those we work with) a non-exclusive, worldwide right and licence to freely use, host, store, reproduce, publish, modify, create derivative works (for example, versions of your content created to ensure your content works better with our Services) and edit your content solely for the purposes of providing you with the Services. The rights that you grant in this licence shall be free of charge, perpetual and capable of sub-licence. We may exercise all rights in the content in all jurisdictions to the full extent for the full period for which any such rights exist. This licence may continue even when you stop using our Services but may be revoked when you delete content or your account unless such content has been shared with others who have not deleted it.

5.3 You must ensure that your content does not infringe anyone else’s intellectual property rights including the copyright, database right or trade mark of any person or entity. By uploading or submitting your content to the Services, you are warranting that you have the right to grant Canon the non-exclusive licence described above. If you are not the owner of the rights in the content or do not have the permission of the owner, please do not submit them to the Services.


Does this sound ok or am I giving up ownership by uploading to the site as 5.1 and 5.2 seem to contradict to me?

Thanks in advance


Edit: Thanks Mod(s) for combining I should have checked back and would have seen that it is indeed very much like US canon gateway library wording :(
