    Explanation of 3rd DMOZ statement...
    Can someone explain to me the scope of the third bullet in DMOZ's submission regulations? Thanks...

    "derivative" is a word used to describe fair use of copyrighted material. perhaps they are telling you they might publish the list of submitted domains. this covers them.

    I think they're talking about the title and description that you submit. You're giving them the right to list it on their site and any derivative sites (like Google Directory).

    Simply it means that the ODP can actually use your submitted title and description if they choose to.. so if you give a description of the site as "the wonderful world of widgets", it means that the ODP publish that description as submitted and redistribute it to others.

    Though perhaps I should add that Netscape own the ODP, which is why they're mentioned.

    I figured it wasn't intended as a "block grant" to use my material from the site, as opposed to just the info I submitted, but it is a little loosely worded.

    All the TOS that AOLs lawyers throw out are loosely worded. Just look at the TOS for AIM and how it caused privacy concerns last week.
