Story, the new app from Disney, looks great and is easy to use. Free to download, all you need to do is to sign up for an account, or log in using Facebook. Easy! Maybe too easy. With your use of the app, you are signing away copyright to your photos and other creations made within the app.
“Hey guys, you know – when you share your photos, videos, music and stuff with us, we’re not going to share them with anyone you don’t want to. What? Dude! I’m offended, of course, we’re not going to take your stuff. We know it’s your stuff. Nah, we’re not going to sell that unflattering photo of you for an ad about obesity. Trust us, we’re Disney!”
We have yet to see if Disney backpedals, but one thing is for sure, over and over again major companies seem to push the boundaries of copyright. So, to all companies, please say it loud and clear – your “stuff” is your “stuff”, we won’t use it, abuse it, or sell it.
