Instagram Terms And Agreement

Instagram says it does not take ownership of its users` content. But the terms and conditions provide that the user grants Instagram a « global license to use their content, not exclusive, fully paid and free, transferable, under-conceded. » This means that Instagram has all the rights of the original owner of the content, in addition to the fact that it is not an exclusive license. It is important for photographers to be aware of this, because if they sell an image under an exclusive license, the image element on instagram would violate that license.

On July 1, 1997, AOL issued revised terms of use that were scheduled to come into effect on July 31, 1997, without its users being formally informed of the changes, including a new policy that would allow third-party partners, including a marketing company, to access their members` phone numbers. A few days before the changes came into effect, an AOL member informed the media of the changes and the following coverage caused a significant influx of internet traffic to the AOL site, allowing users to opt out of their names and numbers on marketing lists. [1] There was no obvious possibility of opting out of the amended terms of use. [13] This measure has drawn strong criticism from data advocates and consumers.

After a day, Instagram apologized and explained it would remove controversial language from its terms of use. [14] Kevin Systrom, a co-founder of Instagram, reacted to the controversy and explained that users had to accept the terms of use before having an Instagram account.
