    Might want to hold back on such accusations. I've asked in a more knowledgeable group, and so far one answer has mentioned an angle I hadn't thought of.

    It's not uncommon for answers in that group to come back diametrically opposed to each other though - will have to see what anyone else adds.

    This really bugs me too. How are YBW distinguishing Classics Forum regulars from the rest of registered YBW forum members?

    I'm not normally interested in Classics Forum but happened in here by chance, horrified to discover that YBW seem to be selling my personal information without even letting me know, regardless of undertakings by the new proprietors to observe the Data Protection Act.

    IPC need to have a word with their lawyers here, it is very likely this is illegal.

    It is, they just haven't admitted it yet, thinking they're dealing with idiots. They seem to have no idea how illegal what they're planning to do, is

    Based on your reading of the fine print, how have you come to this conclusion?

    "IPC Media sold the magazine Classic Boat and the associated Classic Boat website and forum as a going concern to Chelsea Publishing late 2010. Chelsea Publishing now own all Classic Boat trademarks, content and associated data including forum names and email addresses of people who have posted to the Classic Boat forum
    Is this element of the sale legal?"

    I refer you to the bottom of the page.

    IPC has neither been bought by, merged with, or indeed bought Chelsea Publishing, so that doesn't apply.

    I believe the mechanism being used is not anything set down explicitly in the terms, but rather the general principle that rights in content can be bought and sold separately from the content. That's the extra leap that was missing from my earlier assessment. So IPC can't sell our contributions, but they can sell their right to publish them. The terms could prohibit that (you often see the phrase "you grant us a non-exclusive, non-transferrable license to...") but I don't think these ones (haven't bothered to re-read) do.

    So that's that covered. I'm happy now, I think.
