Ft. Lauderdale, Fl USA
Recently, I have recorded several poems on the above-named website to use as links here. The site is free and very simple to use and an excallent way to store audio on the internet.
A guardian angel, however, has recently pointed out a clause in the terms;
" 3. By uploading a file, a user does so on the condition that they are relinquishing their rights to the file to Dump.com. Dump.com may modify, submit, use or share a file at its own discretion without any financial compensation to the user."
I'm not positive what that means. it's hard for me to believe that one could lose all rights to one's work simply by placing them there, although that's what can be read in it. I've sent e-mails requesting clarification and will, hopefully, hear from them.
Anyway, for those considering using that site, take these terms into consideration.
I confess I am a little concerned because I placed my song on there which is due to be released in the near future. Also, once you place something on there, you do not have the power to delete it....bummer.
