Creative Copyright

The fact that BBC News is asking people to MMS in their photos from this weekend's forthcoming Anti-War march is most fine.

However, the bit I like most is the copyright disclaimer at the bottom...

In contributing to BBC News Online you agree to grant us a royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to publish and otherwise use the material in any way that we want, and in any media.... It's important to note, however, that you still own the copyright to everything you contribute to BBC News Online. This means you are perfectly free to take what you have produced and re-publish it somewhere else.

In other words, the punters keeps the copyright and grants the BBC a licence. The Way Forward?
