Ooops, isn't that obvious?
If we talk about "facebook + copyrights" then "nearly all rights" are all
rights regarding the utilization of all content you post on facebook.
You don't transfer the copyrights to facebook, but you transfer "nearly
all rights" of utilization.

The host, (in this case FB) needs some type of license from you to allow that to occur on their servers.
Yes yes: On a SHARING site you need to share the content. Everybody understands
that. But the other side of the medal is that with this "sharing agreements"
you inevitably hand over rights to exploit your content. Everybody should be
aware of this fact. A fact that you tend to deny (sorry to say that).

But that's not enough: The term "transferable, sub-licensable" means that
Facebook can give the rights to utilize content to other companies and
3rd parties
. They can transfer it anywhere!

For instance, the experiences and conclusions of a Corey Ann, a fotographer
and blogger, are:

Keep in mind that this does not only apply to fotos, it also applies to
mp3s or wavs.

Of course, Facebook does not really own the copyrights, BUT Facebook
has nearly all rights to utilize all your content. And it has the
right to give these rights to other companies, to "tranfer" them and to
"sub-license" them. That is what Cory Ann has experienced after a long
fight with facebook.

The problem is: What Corey Ann experienced is not an isolated incident,
it most likely isn't.

I appreciate you for this. Thank you!
Nevertheless it is quite difficult to deal with the complex topic "facebook
and copyrights" as a side note in a thread like this, because nobody likes
to read long juridical convoluted statements.
