I still want to know when Patreon will fix their overbroad ‘rights’ agreement, that gives them complete rights, forever, to any work that I post on Patreon.
And please do not give me that lie that you need those rights to run your servers. I’ve had two copyright lawyers go over the agreement and the both have agreed it is overly broad (no right to revoke, lasts in perpetuity) and it is NOT the standard that anyone else uses.
I’ve asked about this before and been rebuffed and told ‘that’s the industry standard’ which of course it isn’t or that ‘we need this to work’ which you don’t. The lack of a right to revoke, the right of Patreon to use my work to make money for themselves, these are NOT fair terms. When I bring this up, along with my IP attorney’s analysis, no one responds to me further.
So, when is Patreon going to address this very severe legal issue?
Here is one analysis from my attorney: https://jvanstry.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-patreon-licensing-agreement.html
