Photoshop Express terms & conditions to change

Adobe gives ownership back to users

Adobe has found itself embroiled in a bit of a controversy over the terms of use for Adobe Photoshop Express, its free online photo-editing tool.

The original terms of use said that by uploading images to publicly accessible areas of the service, you "grant Adobe a worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable licence to use, distribute, derive revenue or other remuneration from, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such content (in whole or in part) and to incorporate such content into other materials or works in any format or medium now known or later developed".

However, Adobe said it would change the terms of use this week, with the company retaining only those limited rights that allow it to operate the service. If a user decides to terminate their Photoshop Express account, Adobe's rights will also be terminated. Adobe said it doesn't claim ownership of the content and won't sell the images.

The new terms of use go into effect on April 10, 2008.
