Default TripsByTips

If you're considering applying to write for this company...I read the contract, and it is extremely writer-unfriendly and exploitative.

4.1 The author irrevocably transfers to TripsByTips exclusive rights of use and exploitation for content produced for the travel writer’s program and approved by TripsByTips according to the following conditions:
4.1.1 The author irrevocably transfers to TripsByTips exclusive rights of use and exploitation for content produced for the travel writer’s program and approved by TripsByTips according to the following conditions:
4.1.2 The transferred rights of use and exploitation encompass all known forms of use and exploitation, in particular the right to publish the content in electronic media (internet, mobile, radio, etc.).
4.1.3 The transferred rights of use and exploitation are unlimited with regard to geographic location and time.
4.1.4 TripsByTips may assign the transferred rights of use and exploitation to third parties. In this event, the author relinquishes his/her right to be named as creator.
4.2 The transfer of rights of use and exploitation is conditional upon acceptance of the relevant content by TripsByTips. The nature and extent of the use as well as exploitation of content created by the author is solely the discretion of TripsByTips. The author has no right to expect that TripsByTips will publish the content he/she creates or that the use and exploitation of the content he/she creates shall occur in a specific form or manner.

Which sounds bad enough until you find out that they pay for a lot of the content by "participation in advertising."

You also can't delete your stuff if you quit.
