Is this even legal?
Not him but it was technology when Facebook decided they owned your pictures. It was technology when YouTube decided it owned your videos.
This is a continuation of a worrying trend not just limited to reddit.
>All trademarks and copyrights on this page are owned by their respective parties. Images uploaded are the responsibility of the Poster. Comments are owned by the Poster.
It's printed on every page
and that's why 4chan tries to make a profit off of jlist ads and why the site was sold to an Hiro instead of publishing epic threads in book form.
>Internet culture is technology
No it isn't. Technology is a means to an end (A report, a message, jacking off). Internet culture is the end.
This board is to discuss the means, LaTeX, sms, private trackers, etc.
no it doesn't, especially when nobody owns it.
>you can't make money from things that are in teh public domain!
>being this retarded
You can publish one just like it too fagget. Doesn't mean they can sue you because it doesn't belong to them. They can make as much money off it as they want and so can you.
Comments are also owned by the poster, but you give reddit the authority to do whatever the fuck they want with it.
"You retain the rights to your copyrighted content or information that you submit to reddit ("user content") except as described below.

Why is this legal again?
>they put it in the EULA so it must be true
They should also put that your children will now be SJW neutered manslaves for the new feminazi order.
Doesn't make it and truer or more legal.
The fact is that it's public domain. You can print a book just like it and they couldn't sue you if you don't use their logo.
Because both parties 'agreed' to it by creating an account and not reading the agreement.
The agreement doesn't say they get exclusive rights. You're right, anyone can publish the same book, they are well within their rights to do so.
It's just this book has more effective marketing.
There's no license agreement anywhere apart from the shitty EULA. It's not a binding agreement. If you want you can probably get your comment deleted from the book through legal action.
>The fact is that it's public domain.
Please explain how. Not everything published on the Internet becomes public domain, especially considering that the EULA explicitly states the poster still owns the content.
>There's no license agreement anywhere apart from the shitty EULA. It's not a binding agreement.
So sick of this stupid fucking statement. As long as the EULA does not contradict the law, it is an agreement that you have entered and as such you are legally bound by it.
It becomes public domain when you post it in a publicly available space. And any copyright is only worth as much as you can enforce anyway. Then there's argument of what you publish might just be an archiving or journalistic extract of a site as a whole. You can't just claim copyright to things that you publicly and willingly publish to everyone without first registering to protect it or at the very least putting a license like creative commons on your work. That and EULAs are laughable and just saying something in an internet agreement doesn't make it true.
but it does make it true. If your license agreement is claiming something that isn't lawful i.e. claiming someone's work is yours just because you said so.
I hereby decree that every post under this post forfeits all their assets to me because I said so.
>Legally binding because it's not unlawful.
An agreement is not a contract it's not legally enforceable. They can ban you the fuck out of the site (private property) but it doesn't mean they can claim your property you dumbshit especially when they haven't paid you a dickshitting cent for the 'license' of your comments. Again you don't understand the difference between what is legally enforceable and what isn't. They can't sue you for using their site while not actually following their terms. You can sue them for using your quotes without permission because they can't just claim your property just because they put it in an agreement.
If you reply to this post you legally revoke the right to all your possessions.
See I can bullshit agreement too.
