YouDem, YouTube

Massimo Mantellini points out the disappointing approach followed by PD (the Italian Democratic Party) in the license agreement with users contributing to their soon-to-be-launched web TV: PD will have the rights to do anything they want with the content, but those rights are not exclusive (i.e. the user will retain the right to do anything they want with it – elsewhere).

There is nothing evil in that, just wasting an opportunity to create a two-way relationship. Maybe there is no specific reason for this, just lack of attention to details, but in a grassroots-wannabe initiative this is unforgivable.

Commenters to Mantellini’s post are also saying that it is not such a strange thing to do: after all, YouTube does the same. But I find really inappropriate to compare a consensus-creating machine to a profit-making one…
