I was alerted to new offering Mygazines – which basically encourages users to scan magazines and upload them where the community can access them.

Wondering about copyright issues I checked out Mygazines terms and conditions – front and centre is this clause;


You will indemnify and hold harmless Mygazines, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, customers, vendors, officers and employees from any liability, damage or cost (including reasonable attorneys. fees and cost) from (i) any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of your access to the Site, use of the Services, violation of the Terms of Use by you, or the infringement by you, or any third party using your account or Mygazines User ID, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.

Anyone want to run a sweepstake guessing how long it’ll be before they get taken down?

I mean who on earth do they think they’re kidding – what a lame concept……
