Meet VerticalScope, the new owner of Kboards


If you’re on Kboards, you’re well aware of the concern surrounding the forum’s new owners and the changed terms of service.

The Passive Voice, upon receiving a tip about this, did some research into VerticalScope and shared it here, for those curious. 

UPDATE: David Gaughran later reached out to tell Passive Guy that the majority owner of Vertical Scope is Canadian media giant Torstar – the same company that formerly owned Harlequin.

Passive Guy also pasted the new terms of service in that post and emphasized parts that he, as a lawyer who nevertheless is not offering legal advice, found interesting.

And as always, the commenters chime in with thoughtful insights.
