Digitization

While at the AOSA Conference I attended the session "Writing for the Orff Echo." They distributed the photo permission form that had to be used for any photographs accompanying articles. One statement caught my eye, it said the photograph of your child will never appear in the Internet. Never is a very long time. That means the full contents of the Orff Echo will never be available on-line. Never. Not a 5 year moving wall, like JSTOR. Never.

Just wondering, how many other publications have similar restrictions that will prevent them from ever being completely available on-line. Is this the rule in publications that might have pictures with children, or rather the exception.
