Loads of titles on the ShinyLoot weekend sale
that starts today.
Fist of all, (belated) thanks for your posts with ShinyLoot sales. I finally checked the shop out now, and it seems that they indeed have good prices and sales, great search options, and favor a DRM-free approach. The catalog is rather small, but I guess this will change.
Yikes. This is very disappointing. Other sites (GOG for example) do not need such a content cannibalism clause. I would like to post some reviews, but I'm _not_ giving up all my rights to things I spent time and effort for, thank you. :(
This is especially disappointing because elsewhere in their ToS, they make a point that I (as the author) will be the culprit if anything I contribute happens to creates problems. So they are inviting me to contribute to their site, but only if they can grab all rights to the material (meaning I couldn't even post it myself on my own blog without violating ShinyLoot's rights), while at the same time I remain the sole responsible entity if anything goes wrong. Nice. :(
Also, is there a way to browse the entire catalog? I looked for it, but I can only ever browse a single category.
