Under which license is the content of Jolla Together provided? On for example StackOverflow and the Askbot Q&A site, there are clear statements that the user contributed content is available under CC-BY-SA, but the only statement I find on Jolla Together is "Copyright © Jolla Ltd. 2013. All rights reserved."

However, the terms of servicelink goes to a page at jolla.com saying

In some cases you might be able to submit your own materials into our Services. We claim no intellectual property rights over such material. Your materials remain yours. However, unless and until otherwise expressly informed by you, you grant us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide and perpetual right to use, modify, distribute, and prepare derivative works of, such material solely in our Services. This right must be perpetual, as we do not have the technical capability to manually remove all material you might have submitted to our Services.

I think it should be made totally clear which license applies for the content, and it should be stated here at together.jolla.com.

Yes, I agree.

Up, this is still a relevant question.

Completely agree. I would suggest that there the license is one of more premissive CC licenses like e.g. CC-BY (or CC-BY-SA).

There are now together.jolla.com specific terms of service, which includes a section about the rights to materials in together.jolla.com.

The footer of this page still says Copyright © Jolla Ltd. 2013-2015. All rights reserved. I would prefer some hard Creative Commons license instead of the wording in the new ToS about giving everybody a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, unrestricted and irrevocable right to use your Material for any purpose whatsoever subject to them using best efforts to provide you with attribution. What's wrong with CC-BY or CC-BY-SA?
