500px is a photo sharing/sales site that, like any other site or piece of software, needs terms of service. These terms, despite being intended for normal people, are written in impenetrable legalese, which makes them effectively worthless. So, 500px did its users a favor — it translated:

Tumblr does this too, and it’s just as helpful.
