+ - Instagram: So long, and thanks for all the pics!-> 3

Submitted by alphatel
alphatel (1450715) writes "Instagram said today that it has the perpetual right to sell users' photographs without payment or notification, a dramatic policy shift that quickly sparked a public outcry.

The new intellectual property policy, which takes effect on January 16, comes three months after Facebook completed its acquisition of the popular photo-sharing site. Unless Instagram users delete their accounts before the January deadline, they cannot opt out. Perhaps most alarming? Underage users are not exempt.
Athough Instagram's terms of service state you must be at least 13 years old to sign up for the service, the new terms indicate that if a youth signs up, they are agreeing that a parent or guardian is aware that their image, username and photos can also be used in ads."
