The importance of paying attention to the terms of TERMS of AGREEMENT.
I always get news about the International Museum of Women, now part of Global Fund for Women. They do a very good job with women and now they have a wonderful project “Imagining Equality Your Voices on Women’s Human Rights, an Online Media Project” (See more at: http://imaginingequality.imow.org/#sthash.7F2A2...) and because of this I loved their call for submissions.
I loved what I read and I submitted a artwork and I don’t put any attention on their TERMS of AGREEMENT.
I made a journal to share their call for submissions.
F.A. Moore, caught my attention in relation to theTERMS of AGREEMENT, and I really regretted having submitted my work.
Now I do not know how to remove my work and this has taught me that I, and all of us, must be much more careful!!
- F.A. Moore post on my journal:
“Sounds like a great project, Mada. I can imagine many would be interested in this.
Now you should be aware of the TERMS of AGREEMENT, there.
I have added emphasis to the conditions that might be of concern, below. Elipses mean that I deleted small bits of it, for clarity.
