    Don’t see why this is an issue. If people on this blog think it’s OK to share, swap, wwhatever, why shouldn’t the CBC be able to do likewise? At least theyre upfront about it

    Do likewise? I must have missed the part where “people on this blog” sub-licence content to third parties as part of their sharing and swapping, for example.

    If you want to give away your content, then there is no issue.

    That\’s not what I said, Rick. Many people on this blog see no objection to sharing content, so why should they sudenly be up in arms when the CBC shares their content?

    I don’t see why CBC should get free content. Media corporations are holding onto every scrap of their ‘intellecltual property’ so why should we give ours away for free?

    These kind of agreements (submit it and it’s ours)is like me telling the cable company that as soon as it’s broadcast into my home, I own it now.
