iPhone Usage Agreements

Ah the power of QuickTime. I watched the new activation and syncing video for the iPhone and wondered what the agreement said. So here it is.

I then went back and read this section. Is this standard practice? Does this mean that anything you put on the phone and publish to a website is now theirs for use in things like advertisements or promotions?

e.

Moreover, you hereby grant Apple a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use such materials as part of the Service, and in relation to Products, without any compensation or obligation to you.
