So I was just sent this. Thought y’all might wanna take a looksie.

Yeah, it’s actually there at http://ift.tt/2t0iyml

By uploading, distributing, transmitting or otherwise using Your Content with the Service, you grant to us a perpetual, nonexclusive, transferable, royalty-free, sublicensable, and worldwide license to use, host, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, and display Your Content in connection with operating and providing the Service.

No no no, that’s not what that means!

It’s the same thing you’ll see on websites like DeviantArt and stuff like that. I’t just legal jargon for “hey your art goes through our servers, and through our servers other people can see your art, so we need your permission to transfer your art and let other people see it.” 

It’s not a scam where they’re gonna take your art and make money off of it. They just literally don’t want to be sued by people claiming Discord is “reproducing” their art. The reproduction here is just them sending the image to whoever you’re talking to.

I promise you this is in the ToS of any art website, and even Tumblr’s ToS.

There’s Tumblr and DeviantArt’s ToS. Both say almost exactly the same thing that Discord is saying now. It’s just a normal procedure. 

Please stop spreading this idea that when a website or service asks for permission to show your art on their site that it means they’re going to take your art and use it to make money.
