Evernote License

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on July 15, 2008

OK after the prior endorsement of Evernote, I have to say I find the terms of use incredibly overreaching:

“By submitting, posting or displaying Content in Public notebooks in or through the Service, you give Evernote a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such Content. You also agree that Evernote has the right to elect not to accept, post, store, display, publish or transmit any Content in our sole discretion. You agree that this license includes a right for Evernote to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with which Evernote has relationships for the provision of related services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services.”

So anything I put up is essentially under an open license to them that does not even require attribution? I’m a lot less interested in the service now…
