    All IMHO.

    Looks like a good offer - except you have to agree to FaceBooks terms to use their site and that means you lose control of the Copyright.DYOR.
    - I think you also need to be certain the music included is clear of copyright.

    Having read the same words in different sequences (post#1) I'm not at all sure I understand what the Insurers mean by "Smart creators" - nor why they are launching this competition so late into 2012 with premiers not that far away . . . . are they seriously insuring those funny Smart-cars . . . or is this a new term that's got hold of the English language.
