So - the rights grab thing bothers me a
bit...

Also - I am generally unenthusiastic about contests that require trolling for votes in order to get anywhere...it's one thing for the votes to get you prizes along the way, but I feel the decisions on finalists should never be based on how much time you have to annoy people to vote for you...they should be merit based only.

I think the contest is a great idea; but a little different than what I thought. We lost our dog, Thumper, on Christmas Eve, about six months after I purchased the Bissell "Made for Homes with Pets Model". Now I have a vacuum that cleaned a carpet I used to scrape the hair from AND use a shop vac on and I don't have a dog. I was hoping the contest worked differently and the photo we would have picked could have been a tribute to a very special member of our family. Anyway, it's a terrific vacuum for pet hair - it worked far better than I ever thought it would! I highly recommend it!!!!

As a 20+ year employee of an animal shelter, I think its great. Its so nice to see so many well loved creatures. An eventually, hopefully, a small town shelter will benefit.

Unfortunately, as is unfortunately quite typical in such contests, Bissell becomes the owner of your photo, even if you don't win. It's what's called a "rights grab" in the photography business and it's basically a way for someone to get a large collection of good images for essentially free. Normally, transfer of copyright should require a payment of many thousands of dollars.

I a dog lover think it's great that average joes can have their dog's/cat's photo on a vacuum box. I'm even submiting my dog Buddy in the contest. Again I think that is great the pet's the almost no one knows about could be put on a package for everyone to see.:)
