Join Domino’s Ideas Lab, become a serf

Today I received an invite to join Domi­no’s new media ven­ture, the Ideas Lab, a place where you can sell your poten­tial­ly lucra­tive ideas for noth­ing but exten­sive media exploita­tion by a multi­na­tion­al piz­za brand for infin­i­ty time + 1. From their scary Terms and Conditions:

Except as express­ly pro­vid­ed oth­er­wise in the Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, you agree that by post­ing mes­sages, upload­ing files, inputting data, or engag­ing in any oth­er form of com­mu­ni­ca­tion with or through the Web­site, you grant us a roy­al­ty-free, per­pet­u­al, non-exclu­sive, unre­strict­ed, world­wide license […] 


[…] to use, repro­duce, mod­i­fy, adapt, trans­late, enhance, trans­mit, dis­trib­ute, pub­licly per­form, dis­play, or sub­li­cense any such com­mu­ni­ca­tion (includ­ing your iden­ti­ty and infor­ma­tion about you) […] 


[…] in any medi­um (now in exis­tence or here­inafter devel­oped) and for any pur­pose, includ­ing com­mer­cial pur­pos­es, and to autho­rize oth­ers to do so.

Holy shit! All this so I can give free ideas to a multi­na­tion­al cor­po­ra­tion and (pos­si­bly) win a $100 gift vouch­er! Count me in, guys!

(Yo, seri­ous­ly, don’t sign up for stuff like this.)

    What, no free piz­za­’s? Actually,I real­ly would­n’t call a Domi­nos a piz­za. Its more like a sheet of card­board with coloured bits (devoid of flavour or any such pet­ty con­cerns as nutri­ents) on it.
