Are these changes retroactive? From my reading of your new TOS, they are not. They appear to apply only to work published on the platform after September first. But I would appreciate your assurance with respect to this question. Many writers are removing previously published content from the platform. I'd really prefer not to do that if it isn't necessary. (And don't tell me that the rights we're giving you after 9/l are exactly the same as they always were. I'm a lawyer and it's clear to me that they are not.)
