Just Say "no"

Carrie gets a no-prize for bringing us this website detailing the latest changes in CafePress's user agreement. Just for fun we set up a shop over there about a year ago. It never really took off, but it was fun to tink with, and the people who did buy stuff seemed quite pleased with it.

However, CP has now changed their user agreement, giving themselves exclusive royalty-free rights to our works (and yours too, if you own a CP store). This is unacceptable, we've closed the shop. We'd like to thank all of you who bought some stuff. Hang on to it, because it's a collectors item now!

There are other services which we'll be exploring. It's a nifty logo, or at least we think it is!

I will put my mug, shirts, tote bag,mouse pad,etc. away immediately as I am sure I will be able to sell them and help with Olivia's college expenses. lol

Which makes me very glad I never got around to getting my site set up.

The "exclusive rights" to your IP thing has been blown waaay out of proportion. It's 90 days from the time you close your account. Why? Because they have to honor refunds and/or exchanges from people who buy your merchandise through them. They need your artwork on file to replace a defective product, and 90 days was what they felt was reasonable window.
