I don't write reviews because I don't have the motivation. But all this commotion is over nothing. To answer some questions...
When you read a review, there are ads on the page. If you click on the ad, SPCNET gets like a penny or two. If you click on the link AND buy something from the site, SPCNET get a small commission fee. In my opinion, this is totally acceptable. Running a site is not free and definitely not cheap. To expect a webmaster to constantly put money out of his/her own money every month is insane. This is a common practice among the internet these days.Originally Posted by Selene Nguyen
Your original submitted review is yours. Anything editted by SPCNET editors is theirs. You're free to submit your original work to any site you want. SPCNET is not copyrighting your review. It's copyrighting the changes made to your review by its editors.and how you say that once a review has been edited, spcnet now has the copyright, so technically our reviews can appear on any website or god knows where, without the reviewer even knowing about it?
Everything is stated in fine print. No one was trying to hide this fact from you. Also, I REALLY REALLY doubt SPCNET would print/submit your review somewhere else without asking you first.when i submit reviews, i only intend them to stay on spcnet's site, and never thought they would be mishandled without my permission.
