      I have a shutterfly question for you. I just read this on another forum. Is it true?

      I was reading some other posts on another board when I came across this comment on the popular photosharing web-sites and decided that I need to repost it to let everyone on here know:



      Just make sure to READ the fine print when you sign up for those sites - photobucket, snapfish, shutterfly, etc. all own the rights to your photos after you upload them their and can do with them whatever they please (e.g. sell them as stock photos, sell them to advertisers, etc.). Picassa does something similar, though not quite as bad, in that they own the rights to use them in anything Picassa and/or google related.

      The only one I know about at this point that DOESN'T steal your photo rights is Mpix (Mpix.com Online Digital Imaging Service - Order digital photo prints online from professional imaging lab). I haven't used them yet, but my photog recommended them b/c of the photo rights issue. I'm sure there are other companies out there, i just haven't taken the time to investigate them....

        Hi Morgan,
        That is a very good question, and I will try my best to answer. However, please keep in mind that I am not a lawyer (I manage our Shutterfly Gallery), and am therefore not extremely familiar with all of the permissions details...so my word is definitely not gold. But here goes.

        In my experience. if we're interested in leveraging customer content for emails, ads, etc., we always ask for their permission upfront and in many cases provide compensation. The participants are always very excited and pleased to participate.

        For instance, we have a summer promotionn running right now (summer of 200 that features actual Shutterfly customers. These folks have provided their permission, and are happy to be featured.

        FYI - for our terms and conditions about customer submissions, see the "submission" sections of Shutterfly | Help | Terms & Conditions

        Hope that helps. And please feel free to contact me if you have more questions.

        Best,

        Rachel B

        P.S. On a completely different note...I want to do a destination type event for our 10-year anniversary, and have friends/relatives all over the US and Europe. What destination do you think would entice people the most? I was thinking Greece, but am concerned that west coast people won't want to spend the $...any advice would be much appreciated :)

            thanks for the reply. I didn't think it was true.

                Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. Makes my day every time I receive one.

                If anyone has Shutterfly questions I will be happy to answer them.

                I also have a question.

                Per my previous email, any advice on a good Anniversary destination (for me and my husband plus let's say 20 guests)? I have friends and relatives I'd like to invite from the both coasts, and Europe.

                Apologies if this has already been addressed in another thread.

                Thanks so much.

                Rachel
