That’s not cool Tumblr.
Reblogging just in case this is true. I’ll get it off my blog here later, but for now….
Yeah if this is true… I’m just leaving this here and may or not remove all art.
TIME TO READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CHANGES.
Oh yeah. It’s true.
What makes this even more of a shitshow though? Well, if you don’t feel like digging through all the legalese to find this section, I’ve done it for you. This is what it says as of 2014-01-25, 19:53 PST:
Read that. Read all of it. Not just the legalese in white. Not just the “skimmer-friendly” version in gray. Read both and notice how they technically, for all legal purposes, say the same things…yet completely contradict one another from any practical standpoint. The gray boxes are all nice and friendly. The legalese is basically a great big ol’ FUCK YOU.
So yeah, signal boost the hell out of this.
uuuuuugh whaat :(
I’ll be deleting this blog and moving to an alternative website if this actually happens, just to let you all know. s:
Not sure about the truth in this.. But it sounds really bad for the artists that use tumblr to share their work…?
While I am not a lawyer, my understanding is that “for the limited purposes of…” is a precise legal term in copyright law. And they outline those uses for reblogging, potentially onto tumblr sites hosted on personal URLs. Also, this language, or very similar, was present when I signed on last April. Further, ever notice how images suck when your phone reception is bad? They are serving low res files to the mobile devices, I presume, to keep up connectivity, doing that necessitates creating derivative works. Again, I may be wrong but I did read this through several times when it popped up on log-in and am fairly certain intentions are best to be expected from a corporation.
