today, we had an issue in a glocals group, and an activity organiser decided to abandon glocals, so that all the activities organised by him were lost, and wiith them, all the pictures posted on the activity. These pictures were posted by several glocals members, who actually lost their own pictures and picture comments. In this case, it was quite delicated, since it was a photography group, and thus the pictures were really the central point of the activity. This pointed us to what I think it is an interesting discussion about some glocals issues (the discussion started here -- regardless the issue about why the organiser must abandon glocals -- http://www.glocals.com/forums/general/Personal-abuse-from-group-organizer----worlds-biggest-overreaction--179552.htm) :
1) What happens with the activities if an organiser decided to abandon glocals?? Currently they are removed as the organiser profile is removed. Discussion: is the organiser the absolute owner of his activities, or have also the participants something to say about?
2) Which are actually the legal terms in glocals about posting a picture? Does the user preserve the ownership rights of her/his own pictures? Can anybody (or glocals) use/publish/commercialize them? Where can the user read these legal terms?
I am looking forward to read your feedback!!
