Wow but that's a blatent rights grab and from a supposedly pro service. They can sell your wedding pics to your clients or run off a thousand copies of a limited edition print and there's not a thing you can do about it.
Spread the word people, Facebook backed down soon enough.
Re: Mpix Pro Rights Grab
Well, yes, there is something you can do about it. Just because they say it is so doesn't mean it is so. It just means you get to help put some lawyer's kid through college to get compensated -- prob cost more than what you would get out of a settlement.
That's for the heads up on that. (I think it was) Adobe did something similar, a bunch of folks complained and Adobe backed down. Maybe Mpix will do the same if folks complain.
