Hello, I have a question about the ownership of the content that I use to publish on my blog here on wordpress? I am not talking about a blog based on your coding, but a blog in this particular website (“username.wordpress.com”). Do I still own all the rights for my pictures etc? And do wordpress have the rights to use my published pictures for their own advertising, or only have the rights to publish them on their home-page?
You own your content – you grant WordPress.com a license to display it – it is covered in the terms of service agreement and I had to read it more than once to figure it out. The display agreement you agreed to is rather broad but the broadness is required to WordPress.com to display and advertise your content.
