UPDATED: [Gossip] Tiffani Amber Thiessen, Kate Walsh and Others Dumping Instagram Over New Terms & Conditions
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.18.2012



UPDATE: TMZ reports that Instagram has released a statement that denies previous reports that the company plans to sell users' photos, accounts and more to other companies. Several celebrities and non-celebrities have said that they will stop using the service.

Co-founder Kevin Systrom said: "It is our mistake that this language is confusing. To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos. [The new terms of service] was interpreted by many that we were going to sell your photos to others without any compensation. This is not true. Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed. We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period. I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights."

He added that more updates will be coming soon.


Original: Instagram may well be in trouble, as people are dropping them as a service due to a new set of Terms & Conditions that suggest that content uploaded to the site may be used in advertising. TMZ reports that the new terms and conditions, which take effect on January 16th, say that users "agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you."

The new terms have the likes of Kate Walsh and Tiffani Thiessen, among many others, leaving the service. Thiessen tweeted:

Really sad to have to end my luv 4 @instagram. Will be deleting my account due 2 their ridiculous new terms.

Cheryl Burke is also leaving, having posted:

Can't believe Instagrams new policy! They r allowed 2 use ALL of ur images in advertising. Will be erasing my account shortly.
