    You most certainly did. Who do you think is in charge of this forum?

    This is from your earlier post :

    Please show me where the customer did not agree to the terms on PB that first allowed them the right to post pictures forever?

    You have the same rights over all of us from the legal agreement that we agreed to? We can do this forever?

    Will you agree today to never charge us a fee?

    I am not a beneficial owner of Photobucket or this site (just for the SEC guys).
    This is the difference between a business which respects its customers and a business which does not.

    This site, the Home Page and the E-zine will ALWAYS remain free.

    Photobucket had every right to stop its free hosting service. However, before doing it, they should have warned their customers that the service will stop. And they should not forbid their customers, from downloading their pictures and videos, after the announcement.

    These practices show lack of moral, lack of respect for your customers, period.

    This is a crucial element in the whole, sorry saga.

    Photobucket's terms of service state that the ownership of photos hosted on their site remains with the person who uploaded the photos and "owns" the account. But Photobucket (as established by their terms of service) retains a license to use your content (your photos and/or videos) as long as the content remains hosted on their site. If it's MY content, then I have a right to remove it at any time ... no different from putting my money in a bank, and having a right to withdraw my money at any time. Photobucket's site shows tools for downloading your albums, and for deleting your albums. But ... not long after they announced their draconian and extortionist new fee structure for "third party hosting," those tools stopped working. In other words, Photobucket is effectively holding its clients' content hostage. "You own it, but you can't have it back. (And as long as we have it, we can continue to use it however we wish, without any compensation to you.)"

    Sleazy.
