Twitpic Makes Users Angry Over Copyright Claim [bbc.co.uk]
Picture posting service Twitpic has apologised for seeming to claim copyright on every image users upload.

A row blew up over photographs on Twitpic following changes made to the service's terms on 10 May.

Many users cancelled their Twitpic accounts because the changes implied that the site was claiming the right to sell pictures without permission.

Twitpic defended itself and said the new rules were intended to protect users' photos from abuse by the media.
