I just received an email from SnapVillage that states that they have updated their agreements.

Here are the updated Agreements:

SNAPVILLAGE USER AGREEMENT:

CONTRIBUTOR AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/SnapVillage%20Contributor%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

CUSTOMER AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/SnapVillage%20Customer%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

Here are the differences between the old and new agreements:

CHANGES TO SNAPVILLAGE USER AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/Redline%20User%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

CHANGES TO SNAPVILLAGE CONTRIBUTOR AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/Redline%20Contributor%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

CHANGES TO SNAPVILLAGE CUSTOMER AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/Redline%20Customer%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

Maybe someone will take the time to explain the differences in laymans terms.  Anyone???

Seems very unprofessional to send out revised agreements on Sept 27th which have an effective date of August 31st...............

Main point that stroke me was that they transferred the jurisdiction to from the US to Ireland, but I am not sure about the implications. I also find it a little bit, lets say, funny to get all this links to pdf files. It might be only me but for some reasons I dislike them. Takes longer to open and is more difficult to navigate. Any more opinions? SY

CONTRIBUTOR AGREEMENT:
http://www.snapvillage.com/sv_forms/SnapVillage%20Contributor%20Agreement%208-29-07.pdf

Most one sided contract I've ever read.  My favor provisions: 1) if you sue snap village you are required to pay for all their legal expenses including expert witnesses (basically even if you won, you'd still lose money on the suit because they'd run up their legal bill like you wouldn't believe),  2) the waiving of the basic contract principle that any ambiguity in the contract is to be construed against the drafter (I've never seen that one before).

Two reasons for the jurisdiction change pop out at me. The first being that Ireland's laws are less "liberal". The second being that the contract is so one sided that it could be found void in US courts (thanks to Cardozo).

I wouldn't ever agree to this contract, not even if they were biggest selling stock site.
