    I found Item 4 and Item 11 of interest.

    I don't know if said items apply to us mere scribblers or not. big_smile

    Item 4 has to do with minimum payout.
    Item 11 has to do with squeaky wheels (not kidding).

    Personally, neither item induced a heart attack. big_smile

    However, if these items do indeed apply to us; then HP should post the link. I would, but not sure if right or am allowed.

    Some of us may need to prepare for Item 4.

    Some of us may need to be warned about Item 11.

    What's the problem with posting the link?

      I am reasonably certain it is only available to those who log in to the Maven site, as opposed to the general public; thus, my hesitancy. smile

    From what I can see minimum payout is still $50

      Contract says otherwise. However, depending on what Maven classifies us as, it may remain so for now. One way or the other, and because it will save processing costs, it's going to happen here sooner or later.

      Side note. Contracts are written by lawyers for lawyers. As for the rest of us understanding it, good luck. The contract does state a different amount; it's all about what Maven defines us as, among other things. As for the new amount (whenever it happens), Maven's not the first and it's nothing that would make me run for the exits.

      Edit: if Item 11 applies here, I will miss the rants of yore. big_smile

    Aw c'mon. Stop keeping us in suspense. At least post the controversial sections so that we can see the doom and gloom you are hinting at.

      No doom and gloom. We just "work for a corporation" now. Just log into Maven. One should always explore their "employer's" website anyway. big_smile

    Can someone explain No. 6.about ownership? I thought we own our own work, not Maven.

    I see that HP is silent on this 15hrs after. Clarifying this will be appreciated though.

      The question is...

      Does the "Platform Use Terms T2" contract apply to us?

    I've been pawing through the contract some more. Based on my zero legal training, I'm guessing:

    1. HP is forced to pass through to us the ramifications of most of the contract, possibly including Item 11.
    2. The payout minimum between HP and us contributors is still under HP's control and set by HP.


    I could be wrong.

    I can see why it's confusing; the legal language is hard to get through!

    The Maven Terms of Use now apply on HubPages sites. 

    The main  Terms Of Use page covers site users (that is, the consumers of your content). 

    The Addendum page covers Authors' content submissions and monetization.
