    The Facebook IP License

    I was just wondering.. does this:

    "You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings. In addition:
    For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook ("IP License"). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it."

    from here mean that although I own any photos or artwork that I post on Facebook, they can basically do whatever they want with it? I don't want to sound paranoid, but I was hoping someone who understands legal speech could clarify just what I'm consenting to when I'm uploading photos to my profile.

    I think it sounds like this in common language:
    "We know it`s yours and we don`t deny the fact, but as soon as you put stuff on OUR page, we can do whatever the hell we want with it.."
