Users that use this instance grants us a non-exclusive, perpetual, world-wide, irrevocable, no-charge, royalty-free copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute content you post here.

Doesn’t that mean they are applying like CC0 to all your content?

Not naming the instance since i suspect it’s commercial in nature

Not quite. CC0 would grant everyone those rights. This line just grants the owners of the instance those rights.

Some of the rights granted make sense, in regards to use on the web. Basically everything except make derivative works (which would be necessary to develop memes) and sublicense (no real reason other than commercial IMO) are basically required for stuff like Lemmy & the Fediverse to, well, share your posts.

However, it should stipulate non-commercial.
