Hey anybody checkout Indie Band Canada yet?
From their terms I got this and somehow it don't seem right to me.
Do you recognize these words as being standard on these types of sites?
Seems to me that you're giving them the right to do whatever they want with the material you submit.
Please comment.
I was going to sign up but stopped when I read these words:

Is this section just above the part of the agreement where I sign up for a frontal lobotomy?

I think the read danger here is when people fail to read the print, thinking only of improving their exposure.

Good catch BW.

I would much rather have a bottle in front of me...

Dats It

:food-smiley-004: Well that kind of isht is the reason real talent don't get paid. Someone should send 'em a virus:). That was a nice catch by the way and as i'm just starting to look at how to gain exposure i'll most certainly be more cautious. Cheers!!

That looks a bit like soundclick's agreemement, but the part about trademarks sounded a little scary.

Soundclick seems to attract a lot of Artist/contributors, maybe some people feel the tradeoff is worth the exposure.

mark.
