Stamps.com will again offer customers the opportunity to place their personal photographs on postage stamps. Hilarity ensued when they tested the service last year, as documented previously by BoingBoing. The company warns that it has new guidelines in place to prevent a repeat of such pranks. That sounds more like a challenge than a warning.Link
Reader comment: JMG says,
Did you guys read the new content restrictions on that PhotoStamps site?Link (Thanks also Patrick)
"...Stamps.com reserves the right to charge a processing fee of $10.00 for each image, graphic or photograph that you submit as an order in the PhotoStamps service which violates our content restrictions. In addition, in the event you violate these Content Restrictions and you intentionally publicize such violation, you acknowledge that Stamps.com will suffer substantial damage to its reputation and goodwill and that you can be liable for causing such substantial damage. "
Sounds like we'll need some third-party blog to "intentionally publicize" our "violations" on our behalf...
