    Well, whatever happens it made me delete my account. No emo-crap behind it, I just have little interest in accepting their new TOS. /shrug

    interesting. the situation seems to have taken a u-turn. so for those that use instagram, if you go to the news section you will see a link saying "Update: Thank you, and we're listening". It then goes on to explain that the whole 'sell your photo's' thing was a misunderstanding and there will be nothing like that going on and "your photos are your photos. Period".
    i'll see if i can find a link for u guys (those interested).

    Update: FOUND the link
    "Instagram apologizes to users: We won't sell your photos"

    instagram has always had the right to do that.

    its just specifying the language. Actually they are making it slightly harder for them to do that, while specifically saying they will, probably because they plan to. How do you think they have handled your pictures for that long without that right?

    This is why that app has always been crap imho
