I decided to have a book of my M8 shots printed (yeah, appalling vanity, I know ) and an acqauintance steered me towards a product called Photobook at CeWe Photo Books | Photobook | Photo Albums | Digital Photo Albums | Digital Photo Prints - Your digital photos in a real album where you download their software, insert your images, format the book to your liking, upload the finished article to them and they will print it, bind it and post it back to you for a modest sum. There's a number of sites offering these services, no big deal.
However, after I downloaded the software and ran the setup file I read through the terms and conditions before agreeing them (okay, I'm sad in that way! ) and I noticed that by agreeing to the Ts&Cs you are granting them a royalty-free, perpetual licence to use any or all of the images you upload in any way and for any purpose they choose! I chose "not" very swiftly. (Not sure how this would work with releases for the people in your photos.)
Has anybody noticed similar conditions tucked-away in similar photo book printing software?
PS: Jack and Guy: Please move this thread to a more appropriate location as you see fit.

Re: Beware Photobook!
Good heads-up! I should mention here that many so called photo contests say the same thing, so user beware!
