If You Thought I Was Extreme About Commercial Use Of Content


. . . then you should read this clause from a TOS:

The license granted in these TOS does not constitute a transfer or sale of ____’s ownership rights in the ____ Database. ____ retains all right, title, and interest in and to the ___ Database including all related intellectual property rights. You will use your best efforts to prevent and protect the contents of the ______ Database from unauthorized use or distribution. You must not rent, lease, sublicense, sell, assign, loan, distribute, transmit, or otherwise transfer any content of the service, including the ____ Database, or your rights and obligations pursuant to the TOS. You must not copy, reproduce, alter, modify, create derivative works, or publicly display any content of the Service, including the _____ Database, unless expressly authorized in the TOS.

This is from paragraph 6 of Blogline’s TOS.

p.s. I also quote from Blogline’s Acquisition FAQs:

Bloglines, like any aggregator, requires a license to display, distribute and promote the feeds we serve and the content you post — otherwise, we could not provide this service. Bloglines’ license is for the purpose of displaying, distributing and promoting your content in connection with the service.

I, like Denise, wonder what license it refers to.
