Instagram has updated its terms of service, which will come into effect from Jan 19, 2013. The terms of services have been re-written after the recent outrage, which hinted that the service would sell user generated content. Even though Instagram said that this wasn’t the case, the legal language used was misinterpreted which led to the outage amongst its users.
The outage was taken quite seriously up to the point the point where National Geographic said that it would stop publishing its images on the service. You can read the details of the outage here.
Kevin Systrom goes on to say, “Going forward, rather than obtain permission from you to introduce possible advertising products we have not yet developed, we are going to take the time to complete our plans, and then come back to our users and explain how we would like for our advertising business to work… I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos – you do.”
