Some users asked if Facebook would allow images to be licenced under a Creative Common (CC) licensing agreement. The company said in was impractical for Facebook to use Creative Common licensing. "We do not believe [CC] is feasible in a system with more than 175 million active registered users."
Users also complained that Facebook would keep the images indefinitely, even after they had left the site. The proposed changes means that users' information will be deleted when they delete their account from Facebook. "The license now ends when a user deletes their content or their account. In addition, we give users control over their content by making it subject to their Privacy Settings."
Facebook has also revised its policy on third-party applications. It said, "We unfortunately do not have the ability to control third-party applications, and cannot guarantee they are completely safe. However, if you feel that a particular application violates this Statement, please let us know by going to the application's About page and clicking Report Application."
The proposal also clarifies the legal aspects of Facebook. "You are bound by the laws of the country that you live in. You may also need to comply with the laws of other jurisdictions, including the laws of the United States (because our headquarters are based in the US)."
