Adobe to Revise Express Terms of Use

How 'public' is public?

Section 8 of the Photoshop Express terms of use has raised some concern about what rights users of the free beta are granting. It states that "with respect to Your Content that you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Services, you grant Adobe a worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, derive revenue or other remuneration from, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such Content (in whole or in part) and to incorporate such Content into other Materials or works in any format or medium now known or later developed."

In his blog entry (http://blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2008/03/a_note_about_ps.html) today, John Nack notes he was reassured by the Express team that they are revising those terms.

"We've heard your concerns about the terms of service for Photoshop Express beta," he quotes the team. "We reviewed the terms in context of your comments -- and we agree that it currently implies things we would never do with the content. Therefore, our legal team is making it a priority to post revised terms that are more appropriate for Photoshop Express users. We will alert you once we have posted new terms."
