I have been accepted to publish on a large English-speaking site. Among their submission guidelines, I found that I would agree to give away:
[..] a royalty free right to reproduce, publish, distribute, and write derivative texts (as well as translations and adverts) and the right to use your name, likeness or biography as well as publish information about you [..]
I have never seen this before? This essentially means that my name could be plastered all over the web, wherever they see fit to publish my article, translated or not.
And how am I supposed to interpret likeness in the statement above?
Is this really legal?
As an aside, I have been writing online for over 15 years.
Your input on this is highly appreciated.
