without reading the contracts attached to fail blog, fail blog, I can has cheeze burger or any of the other sites that are owned by this company, I think you'll find that they have roughly the same terms and conditions as most other blog sites/networks...
i.e. once you upload and use space on their server, the content is theirs.
so you can't upload a picture or text to the site, see it's the most popular and ask them for a cut of the revenue that all the traffic that your picture has driven to their site has created. -because once you upload it, it's theirs.
legally, an unenforceable contract can't be deemed to be legal anyway, which I'd imagine is the reason that they mostly talk on copyright infringement in their brief with regards their trade marks, (their name and the flaming head).
