Terms of Service section 3, paragraph 2 currently reads:

d.You will ensure that any such Internet use of Subscriber Content Hyperlink each author name directly

which means just that "each such use must contain a hyperlink" so the word hyperlink should start with a lowercase letter.

This is most likely a bug.

    I would rather say that hyperlink is used as verb, in that sentence: "You will ensure that any such Internet use of Subscriber Content hyperlinks each author name directly back to his or her user profile page on the source site on the Network." – kiamlaluno Aug 16 '13 at 14:13

    Lawyers aren't bound by the same Rules of Capitalization And Grammar as the Rest of Us. – Wooble Aug 16 '13 at 14:14

    @kiamlaluno: Whatever, that still requires a lowercase letter. – sharptooth Aug 16 '13 at 14:14

    I find it amusing that you, a programmer, consider this a "bug". – user159834 Aug 16 '13 at 14:20
  • It's probably status-by-design, as in this is how the lawyers gave it to the dev team, so this is how it should look. – chue x Aug 16 '13 at 14:23
  • @chuex: LOL, I usually say "then it's a design defect" in such cases. – sharptooth Aug 16 '13 at 14:24
  • I did downvote this because I initially thought it's kind of a waste of time (people post ridiculously minor "bugs" here all the time), but if you think it makes the TOS confusing then I guess it's legit. I do think you are technically correct. – user159834 Aug 16 '13 at 14:38

    @WesleyMurch: With current wording we have some "Subscriber Content Hyperlink" instead - something I've never heard of. Yes, once I've read that three times I've got to the intended meaning. – sharptooth Aug 16 '13 at 14:43
