    I don't see that in ToS or Privacy Policy.

    Hi mirimir,

    Doesn't the ToS give enough info?
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/help/terms

    What kind of more info are you looking for?
    What do you mean with "Wilders' policy re content ownership and licensing"?
    Which content (content from elsewhere or content posted here)?
    Licensing what?

    Maybe some more explanation by you, about what you are asking, is needed.

    Best regards

    All good questions.
    Regarding content ownership, like FanJ, I can see that perhaps ownership of posted content is meant.
    Also, mirimir's question made me think about the use of images, for instance images for avatars, like the Stupendous Man image that I use for my avatar, that I do not own, it is Bill Watterson's and is licensed to Andrews McMeel Publishing and others. I can imagine that mirimir wonders whether use of content that is not ours, like images, is allowed or not.

    Thanks :) I somehow missed this:
    That addresses the licensing aspect.
    I'm referring to content that users create, not third-party content. I get that posting grants Wilders "perpetual and non-exclusive" rights (aka license) to use that content however they choose. But I don't see any implicit statement about ownership of that content. For example, Quora says this:

    The TOS includes these items of content:
    However, with content ownership comes copyrights, and then this applies (emphasis mine):

    OK, thanks for the clarification. I've been assuming that posters retain copyright, and just wanted to confirm that.
