declined: Hi Pauline, it doesn't actually say they become the owner of what you submit, it says you grant them a non-exclusive license for using the user's submissions, in connection with the site, or any of their other sites. I agree this is quite broad, because they include "promotional purposes", they could have restricted it to the purpose of delivering the service but it's not the same as claiming ownership. Can you pick a different case and set the point back to status 'pending'?

For an example of how they could do better, see for instance https://help.github.com/articles/github-terms-of-service/#4-license-grant-to-us. So you clearly have point here, but please pick a case from the 'Scope of the copyright license' topic.
