Does anyone else wonder...

Does anyone else wonder...

1. If it's possible to private message a member?

2. Where is the access to the "Album" hidden? Or does it only automatically appear if/when we upload an image into a post?

 

And finally, & most important,...

3. I understand that some of this is necessary when running a public forum, but in reading the "Proprietary Rights" clause, the words appear to give up all the rights to any images uploaded here.

For reference, here's what it says:

 

Proprietary Rights

Personally, I think that this goes too far.

I just sent you a PM Frank. So that works.

Thanks, Chris, & I got the email notification. Now if I could only find where they've hidden them!

 

Hey Frank,

 

If you look up in the top, right corner; underneath the Search button, you'll see a small, red envelope.  Click that and it will take you to your inbox.

"small, red envelope. "  Agggh! Thanks! I thought it was a drop down menu.

My main concern on #3 is if I post a link to my work, does that mean Canon also can use my works that is on my personal Flickr and Photobucket?

Then don't post. As long as you know the rules going in you can't really complain. 

 

Same reason I don't do any of the magazine type photo contests.

wow, that goes WAY too far. 


I can see that be very stifling to an image-based community such as this.  e.g. if we're trying to help each other out regarding a photography technique, I would not post any images as examples because I am implicitly giving up rights on them.  No bueno!

 

This is something mods and Canon should address/change asap!

Yup, that goes way too far. Hopefully Canon will change this soon.
