Terms and Conditions regarding Ownership of mypicturetown.com

I just checked the Terms and Conditions regarding ownership of items posted on mypicturetown.com and came to the conclusion that it is better to sign up as a European citizen than a US citizen. Read the difference between the two paragraphs regarding ownership.
