Stop Using Instagram
« on: December 18, 2012, 04:29:46 AM »
Read.
Understand.
Comprehend.
Then delete your photos.
Then delete your account.

Well, that's what I would do if I had ever used it.
But I urge you all to do the same (you can keep the photos on your own pc, fine, but just take them off the website).
If we let companies like this get away with massive copyright infringements like this, then more will be tempted to do the same. Send a message now, otherwise facebook and flickr will be next, then anything you've ever sent on gmail and yahoo, and after that Canon will claim all the photos you ever make on one of their cameras.
Too much gear, too little space.

Not fair! I was thinking of opening an account there but will not now.
How can they have such a policy?? Is it not against some copyright rules? Confused...

Why the big uproar?! In the current economic climate I think it's a good thing that a small local business like Facebook will buy instagram and make a good use of all these photos. They can then sell the photos to other poor companies that cant afford to hire a photographer. Even those who arrange and design shrubberies are under considerable economic stress in this period in history!

Good post/information dr croubie

I might be wrong, but I can't see them getting away with this long term....people that produce good photos WILL stop using them, and instagram will be left with poor quality/uninteresting amateur point and shoot and mobile phone shots.

Look closer, it's not a robin.

Yeah I'm joking, did the montypython quote not give it away? I guess if you don't know the quote, then you don't know it. No harm done

The linked article suggested that flickr (and google+) were OK... can you explain what you mean when you say flickr steals copyright?

Thanks,

Not so. Instagram KNOWS that the average person will not change their habits.
...and Instagram was just bought by Facebook...BEFORE this policy was instituted.
I know I am in the minority....but I would NEVER have a Facebook page.  The reasons are just too many to list....WAY too many. It's just not a safe or very intelligent thing to do. Truly.
It's as if you have left the front door to your home wide open.
