Instagram says it now has the right to sell your photos

"In its first big policy shift since Facebook bought the photo-sharing site, Instagram claims the right to sell users' photos without payment or notification. Oh, and there's no way to opt out."

[news.cnet.com...]


Here's the link to the InstaGram post about the changes: [blog.instagram.com...]

..and the pertinent block of text from the (updated) Instagram TOS:

"Instead, you hereby grant to Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post on or through the Service, except that you can control who can view certain of your Content and activities on the Service as described in the Service's Privacy Policy, available here: instagram.com/legal/privacy."

[instagram.com...]


...maybe it's a translation problem between Facebook's corporate double-talk and plain-English?


"All your base are belong to us" is a bad translation in the 1989 Sega video game Zero Wing [en.wikipedia.org...]
