EDIT: Planned polish-rewrite now complete!
Language has been clarified and concepts explained in more detail.
Comments on business sense will be moved to a journal of mine in the near future.
Hi! So you want to know what the Submission Agreement actually does
? What can be done with your works by deviantART? You've come to the right page!
I have written a human-readable translation of the new Submission Agreement that has been in place since March 2006. (This translation file replaces the old one that I wrote, but comments on the previous one still remain below this description. I have placed a comment to indicate where the old comments stop and the new ones begin.)
Please, read it in full
, and spread the word anywhere you can (without spamming, of course). Please Note: THIS IS A PDF FILE. You need to click the "Download" link and have a PDF reader (Adobe Acrobat) installed.
The preview image is based on a royalty-free stock image from that sxc.hu free stock photo site.
If you have any comments, or specific
criticisms, PLEASE post them! I welcome feedback!

Also, if anyone could make a better preview image for me, I'd appreciate it
