    Is it a scam to hide certain conditions in disclaimers ?

    Like for example, if you were to bury something like this in 100 lines of crap:

    "I agree that whether I win the competition or not, I give up my rights to any of the photos I have submitted, and I accept that xwy.com has the right to publish these photos in whatever manner they wish"

    obviously you'd write something like

    "please make sure to read the disclaimer fully"

    and "clicking on next signifies that you have fully read the disclaimer"

    just used the word photo as an example

    Nope.

    when peoplel click "I've read the disclaimer" They automatically agree to whatever was in there.

    Unless it violates US Law (or whatever country you are in).

    (I'm not sure on the last part. This isn't my strongest area)
