What the?

Legalese has invaded the LJ metadata!

Briefly, the edit/post window showed a tickybox with the following:

I hereby give my authorization to reproduce and/or distribute any part or all of my Content by third parties, with the identification of the name and source, but without any modification. This authorization is remuneration free. Except as stated herein, none of the Content may be transferred, copied, republished and distributed in any form or by any means for commercial use.

It stopped appearing after a couple minutes.

But, yuck, wouldn't it be loads better to have the choice of a CC license or something rather than the choice of "no distribution" (would they block the RSS feed?) vs. whatever the heck this is? I'm not even able to understand what the last sentence says in this context.
