Department of things to watch out for

Always wonder where no-fee writing contests get their money. If there's an obvious sponsor, and a good reputation, that's one thing. This one has a passage in their terms of services which reads:

Property Content on this site and all intellectual property rights (including, without limitation, domain names, trade marks, copyright in the stories, copyright in the website design and copyright in the images and graphics.) associated with such content belong to and shall remain the property of editred.com and its licensors.

I have no idea if that's a deliberate rights grab or just sloppy writing in the terms of service (elsewhere they reserve copyright to authors in a more usual manner), but watch that stuff.
