"You Don't Own Anything Anymore"

John Herrman:

This claim, that users still "own" their content but that websites have a nearly unlimited license to use it, has become so ubiquitous that it's practically boilerplate. It's the new normal for content ownership, and it's phenomenally bizarre. Every time you upload a photo to Facebook or even Google Drive, they become your licensees and, in a very specific way, you their licenser.


Nope. Don't worry about leaving them here, instead hit me up @TRST_Blog and share your thoughts.

What is this Place?

This is the weblog of the strangely disembodied TRST. Here it attempts to write somewhat intelligibly on, well, anything really. Overall, it may be less than enticing.
