Who owns the content on ActiveRain?

By
Education & Training with ActiveRain

This is a question that has increasingly come up from members of the ActiveRain community. Who owns the content that has been published to ActiveRain? The short answer is...

The person who published the content whether it's a blog post, a comment, a picture or a video owns the content (providing they were the owner in the first place).

We see ourselves as a forum and publishing tool for real estate professionals. In the future we plan to create syndication relationships with 3rd party media outlets allowing our members to get the widest reach possible for their message. We believe that we create a lot of value for our members by providing these channels. With that in mind we want to make sure the control is in the members hands about where the content ultimately gets published, whether it's localism or a 3rd party partner site. If any member feels it's no longer in their interest to have their content on the ActiveRain Real Estate Network, they are always free to delete it.

This ActiveRain community is built upon the foundations of trust and transparency with our members. We know full well what would occur if this trust was violated.

Update: The Terms of Service outlining this is now available...

Thanks for reassuring news and perspective, Matt.  When one has dozens of articles and hundreds of photos out, this is good to know.

Jeannie, you can add the copyright blurb to the bottom of you're post if you want, it may help if a spam site tries to rip off the content, but technically you don't need to add it for your content to be copyrighted.
