"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.
