Can Sony use user-generated PSN content in any way it sees fit?


Interesting, this. As pointed out by IHaveThePrincess, a passage in the latest version of Sony's PSN terms and conditions - posted on October 15 - appears to suggest that the company can use any user-generated PSN content in any way it sees fit.

The text says:

"You authorize and license SCEA a royalty free and perpetual right to use, distribute, copy, modify, display, and publish your User Material for any reason without any restrictions or payments to you or any third parties."

Unless we're fuzzy with lack of sleep, this would appear to mean that Sony could, hypothetically, take a SingStar video and use it in a global ad campaign, or even sell on LittleBigPlanet levels as DLC.

Just checking this with SCEE now. Thanks, PS3F.
