Video: Why to avoid posting original content to YouTube

| | Comments (0)

Following up on my earlier blog entry on why to avoid photo sharing sites such as Picasa, a post on blog notes that Google's YouTube service also requires you to sign over distribution rights to them for free:

In short, when you upload a video to YouTube, you grant them a license that allows them to do with it as they please. They can sell it, license it, remix it, make t-shirts, put it in a movie or on a cereal box - whatever fits their business model, without even an email message letting you know.
