I don't know how many watchers/followers I have but I'd appreciate if you'd all pass a warning around.

PayPal is updating it's terms of use and it says

We are adding a new paragraph to section 1.3., which outlines the licence and rights that you give to us and to the PayPal Group (see paragraph 12 below for the definition of “PayPal Group”) to use content that you post for publication using the Services. A similar paragraph features in the Privacy Policy, which is removed by the addition of this paragraph to the User Agreement. The new paragraph at section 1.3 reads as follows:

“When providing us with content or posting content (in each case for publication, whether on- or off-line) using the Services, you grant the PayPal Group a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, publicity, trademarks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. Further, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive your moral rights and promise not to assert such rights against the PayPal Group, its sublicensees or assignees. You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any intellectual property right: your provision of content to us, your posting of content using the Services, and the PayPal Group’s use of such content (including of works derived from it) in connection with the Services.”

Basically if you use PayPal to sell something, the content now belongs to them. That's what they're claiming.

This goes into effect on July 1, 2015.

I know a lot of artists on here use PayPal so I don't want anyone getting their stuff taken from them.

I came. I wrote. I edited and wrote some more.

I'm from, and I love to write Warriors.

I'd love to do art exchanges... except I can't draw. I'm a writer. So to do art trades, anyone who's willing, I will write 1000 words (you know a pictures worth a thousand words?) about something you've drawn, want to draw, a character, anything for one picture.

I hate chain mail. My reaction is this: Not Chain Mail! :iconcryforeverplz:
