Q&A: Giving Away All Rights

Question: A publication has accepted some articles that I wrote. Their policy gives them exclusive rights to reproduce submitted material at their sole discretion. They can also syndicate it to other media. Basically, they ask to own all copyrights to the submitted articles. In return, I will receive a portion of the proceeds if they happen to sell the articles to another outlet.

I just wanna know the implications (for me as a writer) of such a copyright policy.
