I'd like to see someone challenge that in open court... Might wake a few people up.

(And no mention of payment)

I posted an earlier topic about this comp as I was amused by the statement:

Quote:To be in with a chance of winning, simply encourage your friends and family to vote for your photo.

So thats how some Epz members get so many clicks/comments !

Edit: Forgot to add that the whole issue of rights grabbing was discussed here:

This kind of mass copyright abuse, was started by the television companies years ago ("send us your news pictures and we might mention your name".....woweeeeee). In fact, if you read the conditions of picture submission on their websites, not only will you not get paid, some TV companies even expect you to indemnify them against any legal redress as a result of using your pictures!!...
Unfortunately, they've been getting away with it, so now the magazine groups and even some national newspapers are trying it on.
