    I wonder to know whether WordPress.Org or Third party would have a right of “use, modify, and reproduce” my content as google Blogger does OR Not?
    I want to know: Is there a default license I authorized the WordPress when I establish my blog?

    Hi there,

    WordPress.org is not a service provider. WordPress.org is the website where the WordPress community builds the open source WordPress software. If you download that software and install it on your own or a hosting provider’s server. There are no terms or license for using the WordPress software, and the only terms you’d be required to accept are those of your hosting provider and your ISP.

    You are posting here in the support forums for WordPress.com, a hosting provider for the WordPress software, and not the same thing as WordPress.org.

    Thanks for answer my question!
    Therefore my question is just between me and my hosting provider?
    My blog now has the domain home.blog. Does that mean I need to check the Terms of home.blog? Well, it looks like there is no limitations there.
    By the way,I want to say it seems like the wordpress is only a software and it helps to establish a blog instead of a supervisor/administrator of the blog. Do I understand it right?

    Correct.

    My blog now has the domain home.blog

    What is the full address of your site, please? The domain, home.blog, belongs to WordPress.com, so any site on a *.home.blog address is not using the WordPress.org software, but is instead hosted on WordPress.com, and falls under the WordPress.com terms of service that you agreed to when you created this account:

    My full address is: https://asnowwolfsky.home.blog;
    According your words, seems I should check wordpress Term of Use.
    It looks like wordpress does not have what google Blogger has.

    “WordPress” is the name of a piece of software, as I mentioned above.

    Your site, https://asnowwolfsky.home.blog/, is hosted with us on WordPress.com, which is something different, and that site falls under our terms of service that I linked to in my previous comment.
