Dear Photograph: the power of images

At first sight, this seems an extraordinary site. People post photographs that are meaningful to their lives — and life-stories. Many are touching, moving, happy, sad.


The only thing wrong with it is the exploitative licence that the site insists on. It reads:

When you submit your materials, you grant a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free license to use the work to be used, copied, sub-licensed, adapted, transmitted, distributed, published, displayed or otherwise under our discretion in any and all media.
