Social networking, photos sharing, and cloud storage web sites contain language in their terms and conditions which grants the site owner a license to any items uploaded on the site. Depending on the site, the license may be fairly broad including the ability to transfer or sell content to third parties. Brian Von Hatten, Scott & Scott, LLP attorney, suggests businesses may want to reconsider and/or review the terms of use for specific sites.
