Quarterlife more favorable toward UGC than lg15

First glance at the Quarterlife TOS and it appears to be no different than the lg15 TOS.


However, after delving into the comments of that blog, a couple of things really stand out 1) it looks like they did a cut and paste job on their TOS as well and 2) Marshall Herskovitz responded: "The point is, what I said was true -- we WILL be influenced by what our users submit, and WILL acknowledge and pay those users whose material we are influenced by."

Not a vague "we hope to monetize you in the future" but we will pay you. Not "no fan videos will ever be incorporated into the series*" but we will acknowledge. He put his reputation on the line to support this claim.

I'd give my rights away for a credit alone never mind a credit AND pay.

I was going to challenge the C's to respond but I think they know they must respond. From signing Bitsie to social networking and featuring UGC, QL seems to going right after lg15's community.

NOTE: The LG15 discussion page is a great place to respond to this post.

  1. Finally someone gets it. UGC is great. Fan videos are great. But lets face it everyone, wants respect and reward for their contribution. Sometimes a simple thanks is all we need but there are times where people want to built their future on their creativity and its good to see that Marshall is open to ideas.
