No more Flickr?

Flickr has sent you a message on Flickr.

Subject: Terms of Service Update
Date: May 22nd, 2017

If you haven’t heard, Yahoo plans to sell its operating business, including Flickr, to Verizon Communications Inc. We anticipate the completion of the transaction to occur in June 2017. Upon the completion of this proposed transaction, Yahoo products and services, including Flickr, will be provided by a new Verizon-owned company called Yahoo Holdings, Inc.

In connection with this proposed transaction, Yahoo is updating its Terms of Service. You can review the changes by visiting our Terms of Service

These updated terms will automatically be effective on June 8, 2017, unless you cancel your Yahoo account before then.

That’s it! We look forward to continuing to deliver your favorite products and services.

I think that if you use the new service, it would be important to read all the terms  - seems like Yahoo can take and use your content without permission or pay and excuses itsefl from any lawsuit rising from their use of your work. In other words, let the buyer be very beware...
