  • Make certain you understand the implications of perpetual and irrevocable licensing terms. This is an intellectual property issue.

    Hi Joel,

    I can now see why found that part of the terms so discouraging and I want to allay any concerns you might have.

    Just to be clear:
    – we will never try and assume ownership or intellectual property rights of your content. It is yours.
    – we will never try and re-sell or re-use your content
    – we will never sell any of your details onto third parties.

    This part of the licensing terms is simply needed in order for your content to published on our website or for us to export it to PDF. I admit it does sound rather sinister, though.

    For reference, here is the offending sentence: ‘By submitting, posting or displaying User Content you give us a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty free, and non exclusive license to facilitate publication of User Content through Beacon.’

    Thanks for taking the time to bring this to our attention. Hopefully this clears the matter up.

    – Eoin

    I am not sure you really need this:
    ” perpetual, irrevocable,”

    I was going to try, but not, not worth it.

    Yeah, this makes me hesitant as well. Any chance for it being removed?

    Totally understand your concerns. Will try and run it past the lawyers later.

    In the meantime I just want to repeat that we will never take control of your content and we don’t have any nefarious plans – we just want to help you get your content online and make sure it looks professional!

    So why don´t you write that on the contract?

    Yeah, what they said. I’m not gonna risk it ’til the legalese is much improved. Sorry.

    I am going to wait another week and if there is no change I will write my own 1 star review.
    It is a pity but this is the only thing that works to be answered.

    I really do not understand the other colleagues here who have a problem with the terms in their agreement?

    It seems pretty clear that they are not seeking any ownership of our content, but instead seeking to protect THEIR OWN intellectual property.

    Did someone find a section that suggests otherwise? As I now understand it, “perpetual and irrevocable licensing terms” do not apply to our content at all.

    Hi Sfrangos,

    I am reading the “new” terms and it seems that they have updated them to remove the conflicting terms.
