I'm actually quite glad and impressed by the results of this. I think it was an incredibly underhanded maneuver by Facebook to alter their Terms & Conditions like that. It's good to see that people still have some amount of power. Stuff like this is actually the reason that I don't ever enter any sort of online writing/art submission contest because regardless of whether you win or lose they get the rights to your stuff.(CNN) -- Under fire from tens of thousands of users, the social networking site Facebook said early Wednesday it is reverting to its old policy on user information -- for now.
Facebook, the Web's most popular social networking site, has been caught in a content-rights battle after revealing earlier this month that it was granting itself permanent rights to users' photos, wall posts and other information even after a user closed an account.
